This resource identifies all those men and women who have been identified as painters of any sort working in England, Wales, Scotland or Ireland between the years 1500 and 1640. It includes those who were native to the British Isles and also those strangers who came and worked there at any time during this era. It also includes those whom contemporary occupational descriptions refer to as pursuing any specialty within the general category of 'painter' including, e.g., 'limner', 'picture-painter', 'glass-painter', 'herald painter', 'manuscript illuminator', etc. Each entry indicates, wherever possible, names with alternate spellings, places of origin and of residence, contemporary occupational description, dates of life and/or of activity, details of training, known works, and general biographical information. Each name is also accompanied by a list of sources, and by the identity of those who researched that name.

This edition replaces that of September, 2017. It contains 2,712 entries, including thirty-six new entries drawn from research in London and several counties. I am very grateful as always to those who have contributed information: their names will be found in Column ‘M’ of the appropriate entry.
