Diana Glauber (11 January 1650, Utrecht – c. 1721, Hamburg), was a Dutch Golden Age painter.

Biography[edit]

According to Houbraken she was the daughter of the Amsterdam chemist Johann Rudolph Glauber, and the sister of the painters Jan Gotlief and Johannes Glauber.[1] She was good with portraits and historical allegories, but lost her sight and stopped painting.[1] She was still living in Hamburg while Houbraken was writing.[1]

According to the RKD no works are known,[2] but 6 works are described in a period inventory of the Schloss Salzdahlum, of which five form a series of the five senses. [note 1]
