German painter, born in Cologne (in spite of his name, which derives from his father s birthplace) and active in the Netherlands, Italy (1574-87), and most notably Prague, he settled in 1596 as court painter to the emperor Rudolf II. On Rudolf s death (1612) he worked for the emperor Matthias. His paintings, featuring elegant, elongated figures, are - like those of his colleague Bartholomeus Spranger - leading examples of the sophisticated Mannerist art then in vogue at the courts of Northern Europe, and he was particularly good with playfully erotic nudes ( The Triumph of Truth, Alte Pinakothek, Munich, 1598). Engravings after his work gave his style wide infiuence and he ranks as one of the most important German artists of his time.

Alessandro di Cristofano di Lorenzo del Bronzino Allori (May 3, 1535 - September 22, 1607) was an Italian portrait painter of the late Mannerist Florentine school.

Jacopo Bassano (also known as Jacopo da Ponte, c. 1515 - 13 February 1592) was an Italian painter who was born and died in Bassano del Grappa near Venice, which he adopted the name.

Giuliano Bugiardini (January 29, 1475 – February 17, 1577) was an Italian painter of the late-Renaissance period known as Mannerism, active mainly in Florence. Also known as Giuliano di Piero di Simone, he may have initially apprenticed with a sculptor Bertoldo, but then apprenticed with the painter Domenico Ghirlandaio. In 1503, he joined the painter's guild, the Compagnia di San Luca, and began an association with Mariotto Albertinelli that continued until 1509, when Albertinelli moved to the studio of Fra Bartolomeo. Bugiardini’s Virgin and Child can be seen in the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Vasari mentioned Bugiardini assisted Michelangelo very briefly in 1508 with the painting of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. He also painted in Bologna in 1526–1530. 

Lodovico Cardi, also known as Cigoli (1559 – 1613), was an Italian painter and architect of the late Mannerist and early Baroque period, trained and active in his early career in Florence, and spending the last nine years of his life in Rome. He was a pupil of Alessandro Allori, whom he inherited the tradition of late Mannerism, but his sensuous colour and brushwork reveal the influence of Barocci, Correggio, and Venetian painting. 1604 he spent most of his time in Rome, and his dramatic handling of light shows the impact of Caravaggio (Ecce Homo, 1606, Pitti, Florence). Cigoli also worked as an architect; he had scholarly inclinations and was a friend of Galileo.

El Greco ("The Greek") was a painter, sculptor, and architect of the Spanish Renaissance. He usually signed his paintings in Greek letters with his full name, Doménicos Theotokópoulos, underscoring his Greek birth.
