Marten de Vos - The Last Supper
Obra de Marten de Vos (c.1532-1603), pintor flamenc (1)




Parlem de Pintura...

Marten de Vos (Antwerpen, 1532 - Antwerpen, 4 de desembre de 1603) va ser un pintor flamenc. Fill del pintor Pieter de Vos, es creu es va formar amb el seu pare. Es coneix que va realitzar un viatge a Itàlia en els anys centrals del segle XVI, visitant Roma, Florència i Venècia, on segons algunes fonts va estudiar amb Tintoretto. El 1558, i de tornada a Anvers, va entrar al Gremi de Sant Lluc. A partir d'aleshores va treballar per a nombrosos patrons, entre ells pel duc Guillem de Brunswick-Lüneburg, per a qui va realitzar un gran nombre d'obres per a la capella del seu castell a Celle, pel duc de Mecklenburg-Shwering, per a qui va realitzar escenes d'animals, i pel mercader calvinista Gilly Houftman, que va ser durant molt temps el seu mecenes principal. En vida va gaudir de l'èxit, comparable a l'assolit per pintors com Ambrosius Francken I i Frans Francken I. Marten de Vos va morir a Anvers el desembre de 1603.



Parlem de Música...

John Sheppard [Shepherd] (c.1515 - desembre de 1558) a ser un compositor anglès. Es desconeix gran part de la seva vida sent la primera referència de 1543, any que va treballar com a Informator choristarum al Magdalen College d'Oxford. Es creu que a l'entorn de 1550 va entrar a la Capella Reial on hi va romandre, probablement, fins el 1558. El 1554 va sol·licitar, sense èxit, el grau de Doctor en Música per a la Universitat d'Oxford. Com a compositor, va ser notablement prolífic en música religiosa la qual es desconeix la seva cronologia i data de composició. John Sheppard va morir en una ciutat desconeguda el desembre de 1558.
