Jaen Petersz Saenredam
(Zaandam 1565 - Assendelft 1607)
Dutch engraver. A pupil of H. Goltzius and J. De Gheyn, he made, with a very fine technique, engravings of his invention or taken from drawings by K. Van Mander, H. Goltzius, A. Bloemaert, and from Italian paintings.
Henrick Goltzius (Muhlbracht, 1558 – Haarlem, 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.
