Lucas van Leyden

   Dutch painter, active at Leiden and Antwerp. He was especially important for the quality of his woodcuts and engravings, which were strongly influenced by Albrecht Dürer. His paintings suggest Italian influence. Among his best-known paintings are a genre painting, The Chess Players, and a biblical scene, Lot and His Daughters.
