Biography engraver: Christiaan Josi (1768-1828) was born in the Netherlands, but travelled to England. He became a famous artdealer and published many prints in the manner of Ploos van Amstel. Josi eventually bought the entire contents of the workshop of Ploos and republished what was left together with new printdrawings.
