The Thames & Hudson Dictionary of Art Terms
limnerA word for a painter that has been used in different ways according to time and place. In the Middle Ages it was applied to manuscript illuminators, and from the 16th cent. it was used of painters of miniature portraits (Nicholas Hilliard's treatise is called The Arte of Limning). In American usage it denotes the anonymous and often itinerant painters, particularly portraitists, of the 17th and 18th cents. Limners in this last sense are sometimes given invented names in the same manner in which the term 'Master of' is used in European painting--the Schuyler Limner, named after one of the families he portrayed, is an example.
