Master of 1518

active early 16th century

The name Master of 1518 is applied to a painter to whom many works from Antwerp in the earlier 16th century have been attributed. The date of 1518 is on an altarpiece in the church of St Mary, Lübeck. Some of his compositions were later repeated by Pieter Coecke van Aelst, which has resulted in a possible identification of the master with Pieter Coecke's father-in-law, Jan van Dornicke.
