Description :Plate 30 from his Exercise or Armes This important work was produced by De Gheyn in commission for Prince Maurice of Orange, to whom the book is generally dedicated. Arms drill was a highly developed practice in the Dutch Republic, elucidated in a manual first published in 1607 and illustrated by Jacob de Gheyn II. He was born in Antwerp and was probably a pupil of his father Jacob de Gheyn I [1530-1582], who was employed as a glass painter and miniaturist. From 1585 to 1590 he studied with Hendrick Goltzius.
He worked for the Court of Orange at The Hague, and designed the grotto (the earliest in the Netherlands) and other ornamentation of Buitenhof, the garden of Prince Maurice. His drawings and engravings are of greater importance than his paintings, for in their spontaneity and informality they are outstanding documents of the period of transition from Mannerism to naturalism in Dutch art.
His son Jacob de Gheyn III [1596-1641] was also an engraver, specializing in mythological subjects.

Condition : A good and dark impression.
