    Description

    Jan De Bischop. Wonderful copper-plate engraving from Paradigmata Graphices Variorum Artificum, per Joh. Episcopium. Ex Formis Nicolai Visscher. Published at the Hague, 1671. Jan De Bisschop (1628-1671), who Latinized his name into Johannes Episcopius, was a lawyer who became a Dutch Golden Age painter and engraver. He was a fine artist, but as an engraver he is most deserving of notice, and he has left a great number of plates principally etched and harmonized with the graver in a free and pleasing manner. There is great relief and richness of effect in his prints. His most important work was a series of 154 engravings from celebrated antique statues and sketches by eminent painters entitled: Paradigmata Graphices Variorum Artificum.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
