Henrick Goltzius (1558 - 1617) was a Dutch painter and engraver.

He was one of the first great Dutch engravers of the early Baroque period, known as Northern Mannerism; he was known for his sophisticated technique and for the "exuberance" of his compositions.

He studied painting for a few years with his father, while learning the techniques of engraving from the versatile artist Dirck Volckertszoon Coornhert

    Monsieur Darangon bonjour, vous avez raison mais malheureusement je ne fais pas les frais de port, ils arrivent automatiquement (avec des transitaires sérieux) si ça ne tenait qu'à moi je les ferais gratuitement ... merci quand même pour la note positive.
    J'en profite pour vous adresser mes meilleurs vœux de bonne année.
    Merci de votre attention.
