New Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish) 116.II (Simon Frisius)
Simon de Vries or Simon Frisius (1570–75 in Harlingen – 1628/29 in The Hague)
he was a Dutch engraver. He started his career in Paris, and worked in Rouen and Amsterdam before moving to the Hague in 1611 where he became a member of the Confrerie Pictura. He travelled in France, Spain, Germany, Bohemia, and Russia.
Frisius is regarded as one of the first to bring etching to perfection. Abraham Bosse, in his treatise on the art of engraving, observes that the first artist to whom he was indebted for intelligence was Simon Frisius, whom he thinks was entitled to great credit, as being one of the first to handle the point with freedom and facility. His etchings are bold and masterly; and in his hatchings he approaches the neatness and strength of the graver.The prints of De Vries are scarce, and are much esteemed. The small figures which he occasionally introduced into his landscapes are correctly drawn.
Matthijs Bril (painter/draughtsman; Italian; Flemish; 1550 c. - 1583)
Painter and draughtsman. Elder brother of Paul Bril. Born and trained Antwerp; in Rome from c.1575, where painted landscape frescoes in the Vatican, often in collaboration with his brother. Died young by drowning in the Tiber
Claes Jansz. Visscher (publisher/printer; printmaker; painter/draughtsman; Dutch; 1587 - 1652)
Amsterdam. Began as a draughtsman and engraver from 1605, but turned publisher from 1606, and became the largest dealer of his day, specialising in buying and reprinting older plates. He might have been a pupil of David Vinckboons. Father of Nicolaes Visscher I, who inherited the business.
