One of a dynasty of Flemish painters, Roelandt was the son of the artist Maerten Savery and the brother of Jacob I (circa 1545–1602), with whom he studied before joining the workshop of Hans Bol (q.v.). He travelled to Paris in 1603 and then moved to Prague in 1604, where he entered the service of Emperor Rudolf II and became acquainted with Aegidius Sadeler, who would later engrave many of his compositions. After Rudolf’s death in 1612 Savery first entered the service of the Emperor’s brother Matthias in Vienna, and then moved between Amsterdam, Prague, Munich and Salzburg, before settling in Utrecht, where he died in 1639.
