Hans Bol (1534 – 1593) was a Flemish artist. Because Bol’s watercolours became so widely reproduced, he began creating miniatures on parchment. The technique earned him many international clients and a good income. Although Bol was once an important and admired painter, we only know him through his small drawings and watercolours. Most of his paintings appear to have been lost.
