A newly attributed portrait of Christoffel Plantin

The latest issue of the Gulden Passer features an article by Timothy De Paepe and myself in which we attribute a portrait of the Antwerp printer Christoffel Plantin (ca. 1520-1589) as a long lost eighteenth-century likeness from the Panpoëticon Batavûm, an collection of over 350 portraits of Dutch and Flemish writers and men of learning.

The portrait can be seen in Museum Plantin-Moretus in Antwerp. The article can be read here: Lieke van Deinsen & Timothy De Paepe, ‘The Face of The Golden Compasses. A portrait of Christophe Plantin attributed’, in: De Gulden Passer 95 (2017)1, 133-144.
