Animalium Quadrupedum







The Animalium Quadrupedum series of engravings by Adriaen Collaert is hosted by the wonderful Memory of the Netherlands site of which this page of about 15 images forms part of the 16th Century Graphic Art from the Northern and Southern Netherlands section.

Flemish draughtsman, engraver and publisher Adriaen Collaert (1560-1618) was thought to have been trained in his engraving techniques by his father-in-law, Philip Galle. Collaert engraved a few nature series such as Animalium Quadrupedum, which were based on his own drawings but the majority of his engraving legacy is devoted to reproductions. Artcyclopedia.
