Philips Galle (1537–1612)

Galle was a leading Dutch engraver and print publisher, active in Haarlem and Antwerp. He was born in Haarlem and was possibly a pupil of Dirk Volkertsz. Coornhert. He removed to Antwerp and was employed in the workshop of Hieronymus Cock. After 1557, Galle established his own printing and publishing business, which was a great success, and he travelled extensively around Europe. He was one of the most prolific publishers in Europe after 1570, particularly of reproductive engraving of paintings. Galle died at Antwerp.
