A master of the Late Renaissance, Hans Mielich (also known as Muelich, or Müelich) was born in Munich in 1516 (the date is actually not documented; it was deduced from one of his self-portraits, made in 1571, in which his age was given as fifty-five, ArtHistoryReference). He lived for most of his life in Munich, where he has been a leading painter of religious compositions, manuscript illuminations and portraits (http://www.answers.com/topic/hans-mielich-2). Mielich died in 1573.
