Article description

Original antique copper engraving. Allegorical representation of battles from the Thirty Years' War. In the middle there is a globe, above it an eagle on a cross and several angels. Vienna in the background. The figures are by Mathias van Werm. Very rare sheet, not bibliographically verifiable for us; The only copy we have verified is in the Herzog August Library in Wolfenbüttel. Isaak Major (born in Frankfurt am Main around 1576, died in Vienna in 1630), a skilled painter and even more skilled engraver, who learned the basics of his art in Vienna and then went to Prague to complete his training with R. Savery, who was working for Emperor Rudolph II in Prague at that time. In Prague he gave up painting and concentrated entirely on engraving, an art in which the famous Sadeler, who was also very busy at Emperor Rudolph II's court at the time, was involved. became his master. M. seems to have worked in Sadeler's house for a long time and several of his sheets are said to be labeled with Sadeler's name. M. later went to Vienna, where his work was little appreciated and he fell into the usual fate of artists, poverty, in which he died at the age of around 54. (Wikipedia)
