Nicolas de Neufchâtel

active 1561 - 1567

He was born near Mons about 1540, and learnt to paint there. He is generally identified with Colyn van Nieucasteel, who was a pupil of Coecke van Aelst in Antwerp in 1539. Documents establish that Neufchâtel worked in Nuremberg.

Early sources, like Sandrart, add that his name was often corrupted to Nutzschidell and other forms. He was a portrait painter. His only certain work represents the Nuremberg mathematician Neudörfer with his son, 1561 (Munich).
