Andries Jacobsz. Stock

ca. 1580 Antwerp – ca. 1648 The Hague

The Antwerp-born engraver Andries Stock was very likely a pupil of Jacob de Gheyn II in The Hague, who was also a witness at his wedding. In 1614, Stock became a member of the guild there. The list of his engravings in Hollstein comprises 36 items, including religious images, portraits and book illustrations. Stock was a genuine reproductive engraver, who worked exclusively after other artists’ designs and skilfully adapted to the style of his model. This explains the great stylistic diversity of his printed oeuvre. The masters whose inventions he reproduced in prints included Paul Bril, Pieter Paul Rubens, Jan Wildens, Daniel Vinckboons, and Jacob de Gheyn.
