Matthijs Bril

1550 - Jun 8, 1583

Matthijs Bril or Matthijs Bril the Younger was a Flemish painter and draughtsman of landscapes. He spent most of his active career in Rome where his drawings of ancient Roman sites played an important role in the development of topographical landscape art. He was also a painter of capricci, with typical rustic hills with a few ruins. He died young and his younger brother Paul Bril, who had joined him in Rome, finished his commissions.
