Burial of Jacob, plate 3 from the series “Cursus Omnium Creaturarum Dei (The Course of All God’s Creatures)”

Adriaen Collaert, After Hans Bol, Published by Aegidius Sadeler I

About 1580-1584

Prints can be collaborative. Here we have Collaert engraving a design invented by the artist Hans Bol, which was published by one of the Sadelers, a family of printmakers, publishers, and print sellers. In his career Adriaen Collaert engraved about 600 prints, a number of which are of his own design. By far, however, the majority of his work comprises engravings after other Netherlandish artists.
