Mander, Karel van
Karel van Mander (kä´rəl vän män´dər), 1548–1606, Flemish painter and humanist. He wrote plays on biblical themes and translated from the classics. He is known primarily for his biography of painters, Het Schilder-Boeck (1604; tr. Dutch and Flemish Painters, 1936), which, despite its inaccuracies, is generally an adequate early source on Northern painters.
