portrait painting


in The Hague in 1625. RKD entry on Mierevelt Devoting himself first to still lifes, he eventually took up portraiture (portrait painting), in which he achieved such success that the many commissions entrusted to him necessitated the employment of numerous assistants, by whom hundreds of portraits were turned out in factory fashion. Today over 500 paintings are or have been attributed to him. The works that can with certainty be ascribed to his own brush are remarkable for their sincerity, severe drawing and harmonious color, but comparatively few of the two thousand or more portraits that bear his name are wholly his own handiwork. So great was his reputation that he was patronized by royalty in many countries and acquired great wealth. The king of Sweden and the count palatine of Neuburg (Palatinate-Neuburg) presented him with golden chains; Albert VII, Archduke of Austria, at whose court he lived in Delft, in Alsace) was purchased from the Electoral Palatinate. Count Palatine Wolfgang dissolved the monasteries in his territory and thereby increased his revenues and acquired the territory of Disibodenberg Abbey. In 1557, he inherited Palatinate-Neuburg, half of the Rear County of Sponheim and half of the Lordship of Guttenberg from the Palatinate under the Treaty of Heidelberg; this more than doubled his territory. In 1558, he dissolved Hornbach Abbey an took its territory and half the County of Molsheim. In 1559, the Electoral line died out and Wolfgang inherited a share in the Front County of Sponheim. He used these large gains to give each of his five sons some territory: the sovereign Palatinate-Neuburg and Palatinate-Zweibrücken, which fell to John I's second son in 1569, and the non-sovereign collateral lines Palatinate-Sulzbach, Palatinate-Vohenstrauß-Parkstein (Palatinate-Zweibrücken-Vohenstrauss-Parkstein) and Palatinate-Birkenfeld. Biography He was the only son of Louis II, Count Palatine of Zweibrücken and his wife Elisabeth of Hesse (Elisabeth of Hesse (1503–1563)), daughter of William I, Landgrave of Hesse. His father died in 1532, so the regency of Palatinate-Zweibrücken passed to Louis' younger brother Rupert (Rupert, Count Palatine of Veldenz) until 1543. In 1557 Wolfgang received the territory of Palatinate-Neuburg in accordance with the Contract of Heidelberg. In 1548 the Holy Roman Emperor (Holy Roman Empire) Charles V (Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor) occupied his Protestant (Protestantism) territories and reintroduced Catholic practices. This imposition ended in 1552. The Peace of Augsburg of 1555 ended the religious conflict, and in 1557 several ecclesiastical states in Germany were secularised (secularisation), a few of which Wolfgang obtained. In 1566 he served as a cavalry officer in the Turkish Wars (Ottoman wars in Europe). After his death Wolfgangs land was split for his five sons who then created three branches: Philip Louis (House of Palatinate-Neuburg (Palatinate-Neuburg)), John (House of Palatinate-Zweibrücken (Palatinate-Zweibrücken)) and Charles (House of Palatinate-Birkenfeld). Otto Henry and Frederick had no surviving sons.

"Boone 2007 pg.147" The three artists spent time in Madrid and Toledo (Toledo, Spain), and Frederic studied portraiture (portrait painting) by studying Velázquez (Diego Velázquez)'s previous work. '''''View of Toledo''''', is one of the two surviving landscapes painted by El Greco. The other, called ''View and Plan of Toledo'' lies at Museo Del Greco, Toledo (Toledo, Spain), Spain. Along with Vincent van Gogh's ''The Starry Night'', some landscapes by William Turner (J. M. W. Turner), and some works by Monet, it is among the best known depictions of the sky in Western art, and features sharp color contrast between the sky and the hills below. Painted in a Mannerist (or Baroque) style, the work takes liberties with the actual layout of Toledo (Toledo, Spain) (some buildings are depicted in different positions than their actual location, but truthfully depicts on the side the Castle of San Servando (Castillo de San Servando)). It is signed on the lower right corner by El Greco. This is a list of '''Bishops (Bishop (Catholic Church)) and Archbishops of Toledo (Toledo, Spain)''' ( ) is a stone fortification located in the highest part of Toledo, Spain.

In 1521, Hernán Cortés was received by Charles I (Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor) at the Alcázar, following Cortes' conquest of the Aztecs.

Guillaume's nephew and namesake, Guillaume III de Croÿ (William de Croÿ (archbishop)) (1498-1521), was educated in Louvain (Leuven) with Juan Luís Vives, a great philosopher of the time. As it appeared unlikely that he would succeed to the lands of his grandfather, Philippe I, he was destined to the church. Family interests ensured his rapid promotion: he was elected Bishop of Cambrai at the age of 17. Within a year, Charles V (Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor) bestowed upon his young Burgundian friend the archbishopric of Toledo (Toledo, Spain), making him a cardinal and Primate of Spain. This unprecedented move brought Spain to the brink of a civil war. Guillaume accompanied his uncle and Charles to Worms, where on January 6 he died aged 22, following a fall from his horse. His tomb is in the Celestin monastery of Louvain, founded by his father.
