Hans Eworth (c.1520–after 1578)

National Portrait Gallery, London

(d? Antwerp, before May 1579). Netherlandish painter, jeweller, and goldsmith active mainly in England, though he also spent time in Antwerp, Calais, and Portugal. He is first documented in Antwerp in 1540. He joined the Painters Guild that same year and had travelled to London, perhaps due to religious persecution, by 1550. About 50 monogrammed paintings and drawings from 1549 to 1573 are known, with another 20 or so that are potentially by his hand or workshop.
