More About this Item


Description

This remarkable engraving is from Johannes Stradanus's (or Jan van der Straet) Vanaationes Ferrarum, Avium, Piscium, Pugnae Bestiariorum: & Mutuae Bestiarum. The work was published in London circa 1820 by Uytgegeven door Nicolaes Visscher. This work used the original plates that were originally used in publication of this work in the late 16th century. “The engravers of this fine work are Jean Collaert, Charles de Mallery, Corneille Galle, Théodore Galle, Adrien Collaert.” (Menessier de la Lance, Essai de Bibliographie hippique, p. 583).

The work featured elaborate engravings of hunting scenes including mammals, birds, and fish. While the engravings focus on the sport of hunting, it shows details of the weapons, architecture, and fashion of the late 16th century. The plates featured lions, tigers, elephants, bulls, bears, camels, unicorns, stags, satyrs, dragons, porcupines and monkeys.

Stradanus "was employed by Duke Cosimo de' Medici in Florence, who commissioned him to make a number of designs for tapestries representing fowling, fishing and hunting scenes, for the adornment of twenty rooms in the Palace of Peggio-a-Cajano. The present set of 'Venationes' was engraved from these beautiful and original compositions." (Schwerdt)
