Jan Brueghel (1568-1625)
Etching by Anthony Van Dyck and engraving by an unknown printmaker, second state (of seven)
Like in the etchings of Frans Francken and Adam Van Noort Van Dyck enlisted the services of another printmaker to engrave a background. This has been done in dense, horizontal lines, but it is only partially finished. Jan wears a loose ruff collar like his brother Pieter, and fixes the viewer with a steady gaze.
