The series Acts of the apostles was left unfinished after the death of Heemskerck in 1575. Philips Galle asked the famous Stradanus who worked mainly in Italy and Florence for the Medici court, to deliver the drawings for the additional scenes. The designs by Stradanus, with more elegant figures than Heemskerck were engraved in the workshop of Philips Galle, two of them signed by Hendrick Goltzius.
Condition: Excellent impression in the full sheet of laid paper with early watermark and good wide margins.
The last image is taken on the lightbox to show the watermark in the laid paper.
