Master of the Female Half-Lengths

active second quarter of the 16th century

The so-called Master of the Female Half-Lengths is named after a painting of 'A Concert of Three Female Figures' (Austria, Harrach collection). He was the author or overseer of a large group of works. The studio was perhaps in Antwerp and had close connections with Patinir, though the style is more related to that of Benson and Ysenbrant. None of his paintings are dated.
