Illuminated manuscripts had often been produced in pen and wash with a very limited colour range, and many artists such as Jean Pucelle and Matthew Paris specialized in such work, which had been especially common in England since Anglo-Saxon times.
Renaissance artists such as Mantegna and Polidoro da Caravaggio often used grisaille as a classicizing effect, either in imitation of the effect of a classical sculptured relief, or of Roman painting.

In the Low Countries a continuous tradition of grisaille paintings can be traced from Early Netherlands painting to Martin Heemskerck, Pieter Brueghel the Elder, Hendrik Goltzius, the circle of Rembrandt, and Jan van Goyen.
Only a very limited number of map coloured in grisaille are know. It is known that the master colourist Dirk Jansz. Van Santen used this technique.
¤
The map is in a strictly contemporary colouring and of the highest level.
