Frans Floris (1516-1570) was a Flemish painter, was one of a large family trained to the study of art in Flanders. Floris wandered across the Alps and quickly became enamored with the painting (particularly Michelangelo) he found in Rome and the colors he found in Venice. Upon his return home, he opened a workshop on the Italian model from which 120 disciples are stated to have issued. Floris painted series of large pictures for the country houses of Spanish nobles and the villas of Antwerp patricians.   more from wikipedia »
