Jeremias Falck

c. 1619–1677, Gdansk

Jeremias Falck enjoyed an international reputation as a reproductive engraver. The artist had lived and worked in Paris from 1639 to 1645, where he was greatly influenced by the engraving technique of Robert Nanteuil and worked for such prestigious publishers as Le Blond, Mariette and Langlois. Between 1649 and 1655 Falck stayed in Stockholm, where he owed his position as engraver to the Swedish court with his own private workshop in the royal castle to the patronage of Queen Christine. In about 1656 Falck went to Amsterdam to help work on the project of the Cabinet de Reynst.
