Pictura Antique Prints presents the digitized collection of Peter Cornelissen. Peter is an Antiquarian from The Netherlands, in business since 2004 when he started ThePrintscollector, later joined by a few collegues.

Pictura Antique Prints deals in authentic graphic art, prints and illustrations. This includes engravings, etchings and lithographs, as well as drawings and other graphic art. We focus on the 16th to 19th centuries. However, our collection of modern and contemporary prints and books also grows steadily. We display well described items but it is also our aim to list new material quickly, with a temporary limited description. Our images are mostly scanned for greatest detail. Never hesitate to ask for further information or inquire about other material you seek. Much of our inventory is not listed yet. We sell, but also buy.
