The Czech artist, Wenceslaus Hollar, has left behind one of the most important visual records of the seventeenth century. He spent much of his time travelling and living abroad, most notably in Germany, Holland, and England, where he became Scenographer Royal in 1666. To all of these countries he brought an eye keen on detail, an inquiring mind and a deep feeling for people and places. The result is the drawings and etchings of towns and landscapes for which he is best known. Over a hundred of Hollar's drawings have been carefully reproduced in this book, most of them by the highly faithful collotype process, and all have full cataloging information. These are supported by an account of Hollar's life and work which gives a comprehensive assessment of his unique talents and artistic importance.
