Melchior Lorck was a renaissance painter and printmaker. He produced the most thorough visual record of the life and customs of the Ottoman Empire in the 16th century. He was also the first Danish artist of whom a substantial biography is reconstructable and a substantial body of artworks is attributable. Lorck came during Sultan Süleyman's (Suleyman the Magnificent) era to Istanbul and painted two portraits of him. One of these portraits is at the Met Museum's Collection in New York.
