About the Artist

(Circa 1546-1624, Dutch) Most likely van Sichem the Elder was born in Amsterdam circa 1546. An engraver and draughtsman, he seems to have worked in Basel, Strasbourg and Augsburg. He was the son of the bookseller Cornelis Karelsz. 

Historical subjects and portraits are named as his known subjects in Benezit’s Dictionary of Artists.

In the years between 1599 and 1608 Goltzius had drawn a group of fantasy portraits, which were treated in a quasi-archaic stylistic language inspired by Dürer and Lucas van Leyden.
