Footnotes

  • Very little is known of the details of Verwilt's life. Of Flemish origins, he was active in Antwerp between 1544 and 1555. The following year he moved to Sweden where he was to remain for ten years. There he became court painter to King Eric XIV. Few paintings by him survive but one of his portraits of the king, dated 1561, can be found in the Nationalmuseum, Stockholm (inv. no. 1410). He is also known to have carried out tapestry designs for the king, including a series depicting the Kings of Sweden which was never fully realised: only the tapestry showing King Sveno remains intact.
