Joos de Beer
Joos de Beer (died 1591) was an Early Netherlandish painter from Utrecht.
Together with Anthonie Blocklandt van Montfoort (whom he knew as a fellow pupil of Frans Floris), he is known as the founder of the Utrecht school of painting that started around 1590. Van Mander states that De Beer had many paintings by Blocklandt in his workshop that young Bloemaert copied.
