Engraving. 210 x 145mm (8¼ x 5¾"). Trimmed inside platemark; tipped into album sheet with hand-drawn borders around edges.
Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536), Dutch Renaissance humanist and a Catholic theologian. Erasmus prepared important new Latin and Greek editions of the New Testament, and also wrote The Praise of Folly, Handbook of a Christian Knight, On Civility in Children, Copia: Foundations of the Abundant Style, Julius Exclusus, and many other works. Erasmus lived through the Reformation period and he consistently criticized some contemporary popular Christian beliefs. In relation to clerical abuses in the Church, Erasmus remained committed to reforming the Church from within. He also held to Catholic doctrines such as that of free will, which some Protestant Reformers rejected in favour of the doctrine of predestination. His middle road disappointed and even angered many Protestants, such as Martin Luther, as well as conservative Catholics. One of the earliest of many prints reproducing the famous 1532 portrait of Erasmus by Hans Holbein the younger. Engraved by Lucas Vorsterman I (1595-1675), a favoured engraver of his contemporaries Rubens and Van Dyck. Despite his close relationship with Rubens (who was godfather to Vorsterman's eldest son), the engraver felt exploited by the famous painter. At one point Vorsterman made an attempt on Rubens' life, and subsequently moved to England, where he was employed by Charles I, Thomas Howard and the Earl of Pembroke to reproduce paintings from their collections. Howard was then the owner of this picture (one of many versions of the portrait that exist but one of the only ones believed to be painted by Holbein himself). The painting is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
