Anthonis Sallaert

(c. 1590 Brussels? – 1658 Brussels)

It is primarily in his printed work that Anthonis Sallaert shows himself to be one of the most original artistic personalities of Flemish art during the Rubens era. Whereas as a painter he took account of the zeitgeist by creating ambitious figure compositions and portraits in the Rubens manner, his prints, especially the fascinating monotypes, have an unmistakably experimental character. Sallaert’s etchings and woodcuts are extremely rare, so the editions must have been very small.
