Johann
 Liss





 

Johann Liss

(b Oldenburg, c. 1595–1600; d Verona, 5 Dec 1631).

German painter, draughtsman and printmaker, active in Italy. He was one of the few painters working in Venice in the 17th century to achieve European significance. In less than 15 years of artistic activity, he showed exceptional promise, always responding to new inspirations and incorporating them in his own style. Having had his early training in the Netherlands, he brought new vigour to the rich tradition of Venetian painting that had ended with Tintoretto.
