Description

Engraving of a half-length portrait of a sixteenth-century Flemish engineer, Jean Taisner, by Nicolas de Larmessin and published by François Foppens I in Brussels. It was included in Isaac Bullart's Académie des Sciences et Arts... (Brussels: Foppens, 1682). Framed with coloured slips of decorative pattern.
