17771 Elsheimer           Discovered 1998 Mar. 1 by E. W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory.
Adam Elsheimer (1578-1610) was a German painter who influenced many other artists, including Rembrandt and Rubens. The Flight into Egypt showed for the first time our galaxy in a painting. Hendrick Goult made engravings of seven of Elsheimer's paintings and these were crucial in spreading Elsheimers' influence.
