a Flemish Renaissance artist who was active in Germany where he distinguished himself through his portrait paintings. Geldorp was mainly a painter of individual and group portraits. Karel van Mander also mentions some history paintings such as a Diana, a Susanna, an Evangelist, the History of Esther and Ahasverus and two busts of Christ und Mary. There are 70 known works by him which are mostly painted on panel. A series of nine family portraits are part of the collection of the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam. He had a brilliant and powerful palette in which the browns dominate. His later works are characterised by soft transitions and a blueish tone in the wrists and neck of his subjects.
