(b Leiden, ?1494; d Leiden, May/Aug. 1533). Netherlandish engraver and painter. The only evidence for the birthdate of 1494 is van Mander's biography, and some scholars think it is likely Lucas was born a few years earlier than this, around 1490. He was the pupil of his father, from whose hand no works are known, and of Cornelis Engelbrechtsz, but both these were painters whereas Lucas himself was principally an engraver.
