P.353Part Of A Large Collection Of Original Antique Engravings Formed By A Southern California Artist In The Early To Middle Twentieth Century. Each Plate Has Small Glue Marks On Reverse Where They Were Tipped In To An Album.Martin Droeshout Ii [B. Ca. April 1601 In London, D Ca. 1650) Was An English Engraver Of Flemish Descent. He Engraved The Title Portrait For The First Printing Of William Shakespeare's Collected Works, The So-Called First Folio Of 1623. He Is Likely To Have Learned His Craft From His Father Michael And His Elder Brother John, Both Of Whom Were Engravers. The Shakespeare Portrait Was Called "True To Life" By Ben Jonson. Although At The Time Of Shakespeare's Death Martin Droeshout Was Only 15 And Would Probably Not Have Seen The Object Of His Picture Face To Face, It Is Likely That The Face Was Copied From A Portrait Made During Shakespeare's Lifetime. In Addition To Portraits, Droeshout Made Engravings Of Allegorical, Mythical And Satirical Topics.
