Michael Sittow was a Reval artist from what is now Tallinn, Estonia. Sittow, also know as Master Michiel, was trained as an Early Netherlandish painter. This style was popular in the 15th and 16th century Northern Renaissance.
Sittow worked as a court painter for Isabella of Castille and the Habsburgs in Spain and the Netherlands. Sittow painted a large number of portraits, as well as religious paintings. It is believed that Sittow was one of the highest paid court painters of his time, a testament to his skill and popularity.
In 1507, after losing his patron, Sittow joined the local Guild of Kanut. Eventually Sittow received additional commissions, painting royal portraits in Spain, Denmark and the Netherlands.
Sittow’s surviving works are now in major collections such as the Louvre in Paris, the Pushkin in Moscow, and the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. Followers of Sittow have also made a number of masterful copies, taking the place of lost or destroyed works.
