Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Claes Jansz. Visscher, the younger sometimes marked his prints with a monogram composed of a C, an I, and a V. The monogram may be followed by the last letters of Visscher's last name "iácher". Various sources have confused this artist with Claes Jansz. Visscher, also known as Piscator, ca. 1550-1612.
