Thomas Schweicker (December 21, 1540 – October 7, 1602) was a German artist and calligrapher. He was noted for being a painter even though he had no arms or hands.


Schweicker was born in Schwäbisch Hall. He has been a subject of study for his skill at painting and writing.[1] One of his more noted works is the self-portrait, which acts as a memorial tablet on his tomb.[2]
