Dutch Painter Lambert Sustris (c.1515-1520-c.1584)

Lambert Sustris was born in Amsterdam. The painter was active mainly in Italy. He had a distinctive northern Italian mannerist style that was the result of influences coming from Francesco Salvati and Titian.

The painter had a son Friedrich Sustris, also a painter, who was likely born in Padua sometime close to 1540s and who was characterized throughout his life as a Netherlander, although he was born and trained in Italy and it is unlikely that he ever even visited the Netherlands.

The migration of Dutch and Flemish artists to Italy began in the early 16th century as a trip to Rome and Florence was considered to be an indispensable part of the education of the artist. Economic and political reasons often kept foreign artists in Italy and by mid-century, lucrative commissions at the courts of Francesco d'Medici (1541-1587) and his brother Ferdinando (1549-1609) created a permanent community of foreign and local artists employed in major projects at the Palazzo Vecchio under the direction of Francesco's artistic director, Giorgio Vasari. Northern artists were instrumental in creating the sort of international mannerist style that Florence became known for in the second half of the 16th century.
