>>>>>Leonard Brame

Leonaert/Leonard Bramer alias Nestelghat (24 December 1596 – 10 February 1674 (buried)) was aDutch painter, best known for probably being one of the teachers of Johannes Vermeer, although there is no similarity between their work.Bramer’s dark and exotic style is unlike Vermeer’s style. Bramer was primarily a genre and history painter, but also made some unique frescos, not very often found north of the Alps.Leonaert Bramer is one of the most intriguing personalities in seventeenth-century Dutch art.[4] He was a talented and diligent draughtsman, evidently Roman Catholic and a lifelong bachelor.
