Joachim von Sandrart was a German art-historian and painter born in Frankfurt. After studying in Germany, Holland and England, he journeyed in 1627 to Italy, where he became famous as a portrait-painter. He subsequently revisited Holland and then settled in Nuremberg, where he lived out the remainder of his life. His 1649 painting Peace-Banquet now sits in Nuremberg’s town hall.

He is best known as an author of books on art, some of them in Latin, and especially for his historical work, the Deutsche Akademie (1675-1679), of which there is a more recent edition by Sponsel (1896).
