Juan de Flandes

Brief Biography-Juan de Flandes (His real name is unknown) was a Flemish painter who settled in Spain in 1496 and worked for Queen Isabella. He initially trained in Gent, painted in the Flemish style, and was appointed court painter in 1498 by Isabella. He stayed in Castile after Isabella died in 1504. A year later, he won patronage from the Bishop of Palencia, for whom he undertook a commission for twelve paintings in a retable in the Cathedral of Palencia, which he completed in 1518.
