Wenceslaus Hollar (Prague 1607 – 1677 London) was a prolific and well-known Bohemian printmaker, who spent much of his life in England. He is known to German speakers as Wenzel Hollar; and to Czech speakers as Václav Hollar. He is particularly remembered for his engravings and etchings. Lodewijk de Vadder (Grimbergen 1605 – 1655 Brussels) was a Flemish Baroque painter, draughtsperson, engraver and tapestry designer.
In very condition, with ample margins. Some scattered foxing in the margins, some faint creasing in the top left and right margin corners.
