ARTIST/MAKER: Abraham Bloemaert, Netherlandish
Incredibly modern looking pen and ink from the 16th century that I recently came across. You can see influences today in many modern art forms (TV, comics, video games). Think Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Witcher 3 (especially Witcher 3).
Size: 16x20 inches
Substrate: Premium matte
Bleed: full bleed, image goes edge to edge
About This Piece: Abraham Bloemaert (25 December 1566 – 27 January 1651) was a Dutch painter and printmaker in etching and engraving. He was one of the "Haarlem Mannerists" from about 1585, but in the new century altered his style to fit new Baroque trends. He mostly painted history subjects and some landscapes. He was an important teacher, who trained most of the Utrecht Caravaggisti, at least for a period.
