Jan Baptist Herregouts

* c. 1640 in Roermond † 1721 in Bruges

Etching. Size of sheet: 25.5 x 18.3 cm.

Inscribed in brown ink Victites St Joanis Bapt. Watermark A B (Heawood 268, c. 1680).

Literature:    Wurzbach 1;

                     Hollstein 1.

Provenance: C. G. Boerner, 1990, no. 27.

Very fine impression with plate tone. One of only five etchings by the artist.

In 1677/78, Herregouts is listed as a Master of the guild of St. Luke in Antwerp. He was then active in Bruges from 1682, and is again listed as a Master in this city in 1684. It is possible that the artist visited Italy in his youth.

A rare print.
