|Master Prints - Hendrick Goltzius||16th- 17th Century||Dutch|
Master of the Burin. A monument in engraving art. Leading figure of the mannerist school of Dutch engravers. For technique as an engraver Goltzius is considered as unsurpassed, even by Dürer. He was a pupil of Dirk Volckertz, Coornhert and Philippe Galle. His mannerism was highly influenced by Spranger but after a journey to Italy he develloped it to a less exaggerated form. His designs where engraved, often with even more skill by Jan Saenredam and Jacob Matham the son of his second wife.
