Amberger, Christoph

Amberger, Christoph a German painter, was born at Nuremberg in 1490, and studied under Hans Holbein the elder. He executed a set of twelve pictures, representing the history of Joseph and his Brethren, which gained him great celebrity, though he succeeded better in portraits than in history. He painted the emperor Charles V, who honored him with a gold medal and chain. He is supposed by some to have died in 1563, by others in 1550.
