werner niklaus manuel (1484-1530)

who is this?!

O.K. Now that I am back from Switzerland, I am back to update this blog posting with an answer. Werner Niklaus Manuel was:

Niklaus Manuel (probably born in 1484 in Bern; died 28 April 1530 in Bern), was a Swiss dramaturg, painter, graphic artist and politician.

And you can also find him listed under the "List of Swiss People" page. Very useful.

I remain curious and would like to know more. I mean check out the image above...and from 1520?!...maybe I'll update this furtehr at some point or expand in another format.
