Bildnis eines Baumeisters

More about this artwork
The identity of the man cannot be clarified but the set of compasses in his right hand shows him to be an architect. There is evidence that such elegant clothes, especially the cloak with its fur-trimmed collar—that without any other attribute would point to a patrician—were also worn by members of this profession. The artist’s clear association with the Netherlands can also be seen in the panels depicting the ‘Life of the Virgin’.
