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, L├╝beck. 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.
