Netherlandish painter, etcher, and designer of woodcuts, maternal grandson of Jacob Cornelisz. van Oostsanen.
He was the dominant figure in the creation of north Netherlandish woodcuts from the mid-1530s until his death. His monogram, which combines the initials C and T with the staff and bell of St Anthony, was probably inspired by his fathers first name. He was active in Amsterdam and in 1544 made a large map of that city, now in the Weigh House there. He worked as a cartographer in the service of emperor Charles V and also painted group portraits, most notably the Civic Guard
(Historical Museum, Amsterdam), an early example of a type for which Frans Hals later became renowned.
