Article description

Original copper engraving, hand colored in wash and outline when published. This large antique map shows the Mediterranean Sea with its neighboring countries Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, Greece and its islands, Turkey, Egypt, Cyprus and the entire coast of North Africa with Tunisia, Algeria, Marocco and the Atlantic coast, further it includes also the Black Sea. Gerard Valck (30 September 1652 – 21 October 1726) was a Dutch engraver, publisher and cartographer. Valck was born in Amsterdam on 30 September 1652 to an Amsterdam silversmith. He was a student of Abraham Blooteling and later married Blooteling's sister. He went to London with Blooteling in 1672 and may have remained there until 1680. Valck engraved many portraits of English nobility and worked frequently with Blooteling. His earliest dated mezzotint is titled Sleeping Cupid and was published in 1677. He based many of his engravings and mezzotints after designs by other artists like Peter Lely, Gérard de Lairesse and Philip Tideman. He published most of his works himself. In Amsterdam, he had a close partnership with his son Leonardus Valck and Peter Schenk the Elder, who married Gerard's sister in 1687. Valck also published atlases, maps, printed globes and prints of other things. He died in Amsterdam on 21 October 1726. (Wikipedia)
