Engraving from the first series of emblematic engravings ever.

By Otto Vaenius, the tutor of Rubens.
TUTE, SI RECTE VIXERIS
Q. Horatii Flacci emblemata was first published in 1607. This is from the edition of 1612 with the multilingual verses on the backside. In deviation of later editions, this one has no text at all on the front of the page.
On basis of the preparatory sketches for the book that have survived, the co-work between Vaenius and the engravers have been studied. The Q. Horatii Flacci emblemata was a joined effort of printers, learned commentators on Horace, engravers and Vaenius himself.
Otto Vaenius (1556-1629)
Painter and humanist from Leiden fled to the southern Netherlands in 1572 because of the political. In Liege he studied a few years under Dominicus Lampsonius, and then left for a five-year stay in Italy. After his return he settled in Antwerp. Vaenius always tried to maintain favour with the Court. Until the return of his pupil Rubens from Italy, he was the leading painter in Antwerp.
He worked for Rudolf II in Prague, was court painter of Alexander Farnese andf Albrecht and Isabella. He was the most influencial tutor of Pieter Paul Rubens. In his later years he produced emblem books, his first being Q. Horatii Flacci emblemata. His designs were mostly engraved by his younger brother Gysbrecht.
