Hieronymus Wierix, “Landscape with Saint Sebastian”, c,1600

Hieronymus Wierix (aka Jerome Wierix; Hieronymus Wierx) (1553–1619)

“Landscape with Saint Sebastian” (aka “Landschap met de H Sebastiaan”), c.1600 (Rijksmuseum dates: 1563–1619), published in Antwerp by Hieronymus Wierix with privilege from Joachim de Buschere (secretary to the Board of Brabant).

Engraving on laid paper, trimmed around the image borderline with loss of the writing edge and backed with a support sheet providing wide margins.

Size: (sheet) 7.5 x 5.2 cm.

Mauquoy-Hendrickx 1289 (Marie Mauquoy-Hendrickx 1978, “Les Estampes Des Wierix”, vol. 1, Brussels, Bibliotheque Royale Albert, [text] p. 228, [ill.] p. 169); Hollstein Dutch 1637.

The Rijksmuseum offers the following description of this print: (transl.) “Saint Sebastian is tied to a tree. Arrows have pierced into his body. In the background a view of a city. In the margin a Bible quote from Sir. 4 in Latin” (

Condition: a strong and well-printed impression—a lifetime impression based on the quality of the line showing no sign of wear to the printing plate—trimmed around the image and lines of text and laid onto a support of archival (millennium quality) washi paper providing wide margins. Beyond two restored nicks to the left edge, the sheet is in a very good condition for its considerable age with no significant stains.
