Attentive merchant by patjila

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

Portrait of a merchant made during the Hanse event 2012 in Kampen, the Netherlands. This gentleman is a guild member of Saint Michael’s Guild of Zwolle*. He has the looks of a real merchant, calculating, observing and attentive!

While peasants worked the fields and the lords and ladies of the castle feasted, medieval merchants were sailing the seas around Europe and the Mediterranean. They traded in food, raw materials, and luxuries: wool from England, furs from Russia, wood from Scandinavia, salt and wine from France, horses from Spain, cloth and tapestries from Flanders, glass from Italy, and silks and spices from Asia.

Equipment: Eyes, hands, mind, soul, Canon Eos 30D
