Albert Cornelis

active 1512; died 1531

Cornelis was active in Bruges from 1512 and died in 1531. There are many indications that he ran a large business as a painter and was probably also a dealer in pcitures.  

He was responsible for a triptych of the Coronation of the Virgin commissioned by a Bruges Guild in 1517 and delivered in 1517. The central panel survives in Bruges (Church of St James) and the faces, documented as his work as a result of a lawsuit, provide evidence of his style as a painter.
