About This Piece
The Art
Caribbean and Central America from the atlas Toonneel Des Aer Drycx Vol II published Blaeu Joan Royal Geographical Society London UK The Bridgeman Art Library

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
European cartographer, Joan Blaeu (1599 – 1673) elevated mapmaking to a lavish art form, helmed the 17th century’s largest printing press and was chief cartographer to the Dutch East India Company. Blaeu became Europe’s premier cartographer after the death of groundbreaking mapmaker Jodocus Hondius II by creating an exquisitely bound, colored and engraved world atlas, Theatrum Orbis Terrarum or Atlas Major, which contained more than 3,000 text pages, and approximately 600 maps. The most expensive 17th century book, it targeted a wealthy patronage primarily interested in using the volume for display. At its peak, Blaeu’s printing press created over 1 million impressions from 1,000 copper plates within only four years.
