1595: Jan van der Straet (Stradanus)
Royal Collection Trust, UK.
The Royal Collection Trust states: ‘A drawing of a scene within a printing shop; on the left is a screw press being turned by one man, while another examines an impression. Damp paper hangs drying above them. In the centre, around a table, several engravers are at work on metal plates copying the designs on vertical stands in front of them. This is connected with the designs for the Nova Reperta, but the corresponding engraving, plate 19, (RCIN 808377) is very different.’ [Plate 19 is shown below.]
Pen and ink with wash, white heightening and touches of red chalk, over black chalk.
To be included.
