The Master of Delft (fl c. 1490–1520) was a Dutch painter.

Biography[edit]

He may have been born in 1470. His style can be compared to the Master of the Virgo inter Virgines, who was believed to have been active in Delft. The Master of Delft can be connected to Delft by the inclusion of the Nieuwe Kerk tower, which was completed in 1496, in the background of his early Crucifixion triptych. He can also be connected with Delft by a pair of altarpiece wings painted in the Master's workshop circa 1510, which had the arms and portraits of the Mayor of Delft, Dirk van Beest, and his family.[1]
