Aegidius Sadeler II (?1570-1629), engraver, draughtsman and painter. Part of an important family of engravers, publishers and printsellers in Antwerp, Aegidius moved to Munich as a young man and also visited Rome. In around 1597 he arrived in Prague, working as an imperial engraver at the courts of Rudolf II, Matthias and Ferdinand II. Aegidius was admired for the psychological insight of his engravings, which earned him the sobriquet of the 'Phoenix of Engraving'. Engraving after a self-portrait, from the 'True Effigies Of the most Eminent Painters, and other Famous Artists That have Flourished in Europe' published in 1694 in Antwerp.
