a German historical painter. He decorated many of the palaces and churches in Munich, but his finest work, called 'The Last Judgment', is in the Senate Hall at Augsburg. A notable picture by him is a representation of 'David and Abigail', now at Vienna. He etched several plates from his own design, representing religious subjects (dated 1600, 1601, 1603), and his pictures were also engraved by two members of the Sadeler family and by Kilian, the plates numbering altogether over seventy. He practised in architecture, and painted a few miniatures, but his chief work was in fresco and in oil paint.
