Published in Bruges by Hubert Goltzius in 1565, the Lamberti Lombardi Vita is the first biography of an artist written in the North, some years after Vasari's Vite (1550). Its author, Dominique Lampson (1532-1599), is a great figure of the humanist movement in Liège. After having been Reginald Pole’s secretary, he became that of the Princes-Bishops. It was in Pole’s service that he discovered the work of the painter Lambert Lombard and he studied under him in Liège. Lombard is nowadays little known outside of Belgium.
As a programmatic biography, this little book in Latin is addressed to the learned painter that was Lombard, as will be his pupil Otto Vaenius and latter’s pupil, Rubens. The Vita provides elements essential to our understanding of the innovations that Lombard introduced into the painting of the Netherlands. What is more, it proposes a coherent theory of painting based upon the art of rhetoric. The Vita thus illustrates the reception of Antiquity by artists in both of its aspects: texts and artefacts. An alert introduction and a precise and elegant translation by Colette Nativel invite one to rediscover both Lampson and Lombard.
