Michel Natalis (1610-1668) was a painter, artist, and engraver from Belgium who used the best Flemish engravers of the day including members of the Wierix family, C. de Mallory, and A. Collaert, all related to the Galle publishing house in Antwerp. Most of the plates are after drawings of the Italian artist Bernardo Passeri, and a few are after drawings by Martin de Vos.
