Antonio Ribas y Hasselman (ca. 1640 - 28 April 1711) was a Brunanter painter of the late Renaissance period. He is considered one of the finest early Brunanter painters, along with Rickard Helsenberg and contemporary Carels Van Laesburg. Hasselman was well supported by King Karl Van Draak as a court painter.

BiographyEdit

Hasselman was born in Seville, Spain around 1640 to a penniless musician and his wife. His father died shortly after, and he lived in Brunant with his mother from then on. Hasselman's mother was married to a painter who became Hasselman's tutor.

Hasselman began painting in the early 1660s. By the mid-1670s, he was painting for the Kings of Brunant and was given a royal patronage in 1678.

His paintings are in many museums like the National Museum of Art in Koningstad and the Art Museum of Juliana.
