Brosamer, Hans

Brosamer, Hans

(häns brō`zämər), c.1500–1554, German painter and engraver. His work shows the influence of Cranach, Dürer, and Holbein. Recent scholarship has attempted to reattribute a large body of works bearing the signature HB which are no longer thought to be by Brosamer. Among works accepted as his are many portraits.
