Denys Calvaert (Flemish, 1540 - 1619)
Calvaert moved from Antwerp to Bologna, where his small colourful devotional paintings on copper became especially popular. He may have introduced this type of painting to the city, which became his home from about 1560. He concentrated on religious subjects, producing large altarpieces in addition to small detailed and highly finished works. Calvaert exerted a strong influence on the younger generation of Bolognese artists, such as Guido Reni and Domenichino, through his own paintings and through the academy he founded.
