Jan Collaert I (1525/30 - 1580)
Also Called Hans Collaert the Elder. Engraver and publisher, probably born in Brussels, active as designer and cartoon painter of tapestries. Established himself in Antwerp between 1560-1563; father of Adriaen and Jan Collaert II


Otto Vaenius (1556-1629) - Flemish School
Painter en poët born in Leyden who died in Brussels with noble blood in him and descended from Jan III Duc de Brabant. As a compatriot of Phillips II of Spain he left the Northern Netherlands after the victory of the prince of Orange and came to Antwerp and later to Liège. In 1576 he went to Italy and was a pupil of Zuccharo for five years. Otto Venius was an established artist and worked under the protection of Rudolf II in Prague, was court painter of Alexander Farnese, court painter of Albrecht and Isabella. Otto Vaenius was perhaps the most influencial tutor of Pieter Paul Rubens.
His designs were mostly engraved by his younger brother Gysbrecht.

Woutneel, Hans (fl.1585-before 1608) Flemish School
Bookseller and print publisher. Born in Antwerp, emigrated as refugee to London after 1585; major figure in Anglo-Fremish book and art trade. Name spelt in myriad different versions. Bibliography: R. A. Gerard, ‘Woutneel, de Passe and the Anglo-Netherlandish Print Trade’, Print Quarterly, 13 (1996), 363-76.
Netherlanders in Elizabethan England
Some of these émigrés, such as Jodocus Hondius the elder and Pieter van den Keere achieved greater fame and distinction on their return to the Netherlands. A few others, such as William Kip, Hans Woutneel and Renold Elstrack stayed in England for the rest of their working lives. Relatively little is known about the cartographic work of several names such as Reyner Wolfe, Lenaert Terwoort, Cornelis de Hooghe or Johannes Rutlinger. However, taken as a whole, the influence of these emigrants from the Low Countries and adjacent regions was significant in transmitting engraving and map-making skills to English adherents at a time of immaturity.
