De Hooghe was skilled as an etcher, draughtsman, painter, sculptor and medalist. He is best known for political caricatures of Louis XIV and propagandistic prints supporting William of Orange. During his career, de Hooghe produced over 3500 prints. He also illustrated books, and his illustrations can be found in some of the most important texts of his period. Author: Gottfried Arnold (pseud. Christophorus Irenaeus) (1666-1714) was an important German Lutheran theologian and historian.
