Jan van Scorel (1495 – 6 December 1562) was an influential Dutch painter credited with the introduction of High Italian Renaissance art to the Netherlands.
He was born in Schoorl, north of Alkmaar and close to Egmond Abbey. It is not known whether he began his studies under the Master of Alkmaar, Pieter Gerritsz in Haarlem, Jacob Cornelisz in Amsterdam, or with Jan Gossaert in Utrecht but it is certain that the last two were the master painters he would meet later in his life and who would have the greatest effect on his technique. According to the RKD, he is registered in Haarlem in 1517 where he perhaps collaborated with his contemporary Maarten van Heemskerck, who like him, had been born close to Alkmaar (they certainly collaborated in Haarlem in 1528). In 1524 Jan Gossaert is registered at Duurstede Castle, near Utrecht, where he had Jan van Scorel as pupil. Van Scorel began traveling through Europe in his early twenties after visiting Utrecht. In 1518-22 he is registered in Venice, and along the way, heading to Nuremberg and then on via Austria over the alps. In the village of Obervellach, in 1520, he completed his first representative work, the "Sippenaltar" in St. Martin's church. Giorgione served as a considerable influence on van Scorel during his tenure in Venice. Upon leaving Venice, from 1522–24, van Scorel passed through Rome and made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. His experiences in Jerusalem are depicted in many of his later works. Perhaps because of his experiences, Heemskerck later traveled to Rome himself, benefitting from Van Scorel's experiences.
