U is for Adriaen van Utrecht

This painter is rom the Flemish Baroque period and lived about 1599-1652.  He's one of those painters that doesn't get taught a lot (but to be honest- unless you are in a college level art history class no one talks about anyone beyond Van Gogh, Da Vinci, Michelangelo or Rapheal...) Adriaen painted incredibly detailed images in oil.  They are absolutely beautiful- I hope to be able to paint as well some day.
