Product description


Hollar was born in Prague. As a young engraver making a precarious living wandering round Europe during the 30 Years War, he was picked up by a colourful English figure: Lord Arundel who had a passion for art, beautiful things and collecting. Arundel gave him employment and brought him back to London, where Hollar made a name for himself with his fashion plates, maps and panoramas. During the Civil War, Hollar was in exile with the royalists in Antwerp. He returned to England ahead of Charles II, and continued to make his unique and invaluable record of the period of the Restoration - and of London during a time of catastrophe and change.

From the Publisher

Hollar was the artist/engraver who drew London before and after the Great Fire of 1666. It is because of his panoramas that we know (for e.g.) what Old St Paul's was like, before it was completely destroyed and subsequently rebuilt by Wren. Gillian Tindal
