16th century map by Georg Braun and Frans Hogenberg

Frame: 27 1/4" x 21 1/4"
Map: 20 1/4" x 14 1/4"

This piece is a colored copper engraving after a sketch from 1594 by Huefnagel. Decorative view of Innsbruck in Austria across the river Inn with the castle Ambras in the foreground. Huefnagel was a very famous artist, whose sketches of towns are outstanding decorative and were often decorated with animals, figures or local people in the foreground. In the background the mountains of the alps in Tirol. In the lower left corner with a small text table and a dedication on Huefnagel and Alexander Colyns on which the cartographic source of the view is based. (Source: biblio.com)

Frans Hogenberg (1535-1590) was a Flemish and German painter, engraver, and mapmaker. Hogenberg was born in Mechelen in Flanders as the son of Nicolaas Hogenberg. In 1568 he was banned from Antwerp by the Duke of Alva because he was a protestant and had printed engravings sympathizing with the Beeldenstorm. He travelled to London, where he stayed a few years before emigrating to Cologne. He is known for portraits and topographical views as well as historical allegories. He also produced scenes of contemporary historical events.

Georg Braun (also Brunus, Bruin; 1541 – 10 March 1622) was a German topo-geographer. From 1572 to 1617, he edited the Civitates orbis terrarum, which contains 546 prospects, birds-eye views and maps of cities from all around the world. He was the principal editor of the work, he acquired the tables, hired the artists, and wrote the texts. He died as an octogenarian in 1622, as the only survivor of the original team to witness the publication of volume VI in 1617.
