Calvaert, Denis, painter, was born in 1555 at Antwerp, where he studied landscape painting, removing subsequently to Bologna. Here he opened a school, among the pupils of which were such celebrated men as Guido and Domenichino. The special merit of Calvaert's pictures is the power of grouping and colouring they exhibit. He died in 1619 at Bologna,
