Article description

Article description

Original antique copper engraving, uncolored. By Petrus Kaerius after Gerard Mercator & Jodocus Hondius from the Atlas Minor by Johannes Janssonius. This very detailed map shows the region between Heidelberg in the north and Sigmaringen in the south, Straßburg in the west and Nördlingen in the east. The cartouche is engraved in the upper right corner. Pieter van den Keere, also Peter or Petrus Kaerius, (* 1570 in Ghent; † 1630 in Ghent) was a Belgian engraver and publisher. Pieter van den Keere was born in Ghent in 1570 as the son of the printer and typesetter Hendric van den Keere the Younger. Due to religious unrest and persecution, he fled to London, where he worked as an engraver. His earliest engravings can be found in John Norden's Speculum Britanniae (1593), including bird's-eye views of London and Westminster Abbey. Around 1595, Pieter van den Keere returned to Holland and settled in Amsterdam, where he lived and worked until his death. The first work to be published there was the Nova totius Europae descriptio in cooperation with Jodocus Hondius. In addition to his work as an engraver, he also worked as a publisher from 1609. He produced, among other things, In 1613 he gave the Rotterdam Admiralty several globes. In 1617 the Atlas of the Netherlands Germania inferior was published with his name as the author and with some maps that show his full engraver's signature. In addition to various topographical individual sheets, including those of Amsterdam (1618), Nuremberg (1619) and the Duchy of Württemberg (1619), Van den Keere engraved a world map (Nova totius terrarum orbis) in 1621, which was published by Jan Janszoon in Amsterdam. After 1620 he seems to have been running a brisk copperplate engraving business, at least an inventory taken in 1623 shows a rich supply of corresponding works. He died in Ghent in 1630. (Wikipedia)
