The print belongs to “Icones Principum Virorum” printed by Gillis Hendricx in 1646, whose frontispiece indicates that it contains a hundred portraits of princes, writers, artists and engravers including five of the eight who worked at the eighty plates of the iconographic apparatus: Paulus Pontius (1603–1658), Lucas Vorsterman (1595–1675), Willem Hondius (1597–1658), Pieter de Jode the Younger (1606–1674) and Robert van Voerst (1597–1636). The presence of the engravers between the personalities portrayed testifies to the importance given by Van Dyck to this technique.
The subject portrait, Peter Snayers (1592–1667), Flemish painter, pupil of Sebastian Vrancx, from 1628 worked in Brussels as a court painter. He mostly painted battles scenes, horseback battles and hunting scenes.
Andries Jacobsz Stock (Anversa, 1580 - L'Aja, 1648) was a Baroque engraver, printer and publisher best known for his portraits and frontispieces. He was an assistant of Hendrick Hondius.
