About This Piece
The Art
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.

The Artist
One of the most famous Dutch cartographers, Henricus Hondius (1597 – 1651) produced geographically factual maps that were also elaborate works of exquisite beauty. Hondius initially assisted his father, a pioneering cartographer who invented a method of reproducing spherical objects on a two-dimensional surface. Later opening his own firm in Amsterdam, Hondius created maps that solely depicted explored areas, whereas other cartographers illustrated unseen regions based on their imaginations. Hondius also devised double-hemisphere maps that set a precedent for cartography in the 17th and 18th centuries.
