Anton Wierix II (aka Antonie Wierix)

Flemish printmaker

Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Anton was probably taught by his brother Johan. His work includes many religious scenes, some designed by himself, others after works by such artists as Marten de Vos and Crispin van den Broeck. After Anton's early death, Jerome took over his copperplates and published several of Anton's engravings under his own name. The work and life dates of his son, also named Anton Wierix, has often been confused with that of the father in most sources.
