BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Biography engraver: Frederik Bloemaert (c. 1614 – 11 June 1690) was a Dutch printmaker and draftsman. Bloemaert was born and died in Utrecht. He was the youngest son of Abraham Bloemaert and distinguished himself as an engraver. He learned the art from his father, and was chiefly occupied in engraving after his designs. His principal work was a drawing book, containing 173 plates, engraved from the designs of his father. He also executed a few plates entirely with the graver. His prints are sometimes signed A. Bloem. inv. F. B. filius fecit, and sometimes F. B.

Biography artist: Abraham Bloemaert (25 December 1566 – 27 January 1651) was a Dutch painter and printmaker who used etching and engraving. He initially worked in the style of the “Haarlem Mannerists”, but by the beginning of the 17th-century altered his style in line with the new Baroque style that was then developing. He mostly painted history subjects and some landscapes. He was an important teacher, who trained most of the Utrecht Caravaggisti.
