Benson, Ambrosius (South Netherlandish painter, ca. 1495-before 1550)

Note: South Netherlandish painter born in Lombardy and active in Bruges, Benson was a pupil of Gerard David and head of the Guil of Saint Luke from 1537-1539 and 1543-1544. He ran a large workshop that exported his paintings to Spain, through the Spanish community in Segovia. This is most likely how the identity of a Master of Segovia was created and now believed to be Benson. The 50 works attributed to him in Segovia are signed A. B., which also probably accounts for the former identity of Monogrammist A B. He was also formerly known as the Master of The Deipara Virgo of Antwerp. Comment on works: religious
