Cornelis van Dalem Biography

Flemish painter, born c.1530/35 in Antwerp (?). In 1545 he was apprenticed to Jan Adriaensen and in 1556 became a free master of the Antwerp guild. In 1565 he left Antwerp and bought an estate near Breda, a circumstance that was connected with the ban on the Anabaptist movement (proclaimed in 1566), with which Van Dalem had been involved. In 1571 he was accused of heresy. He died in 1573. - Between 1560 and 1564 Bartholomeus Spranger was his pupil.
