Fine sixteenth-century etching and burin, from a private collection, on fine laid paper with watermark, from the famous work by Martin Corneille:
Les Genealogies et anciennes descentes des forestiers et comtes de Flandre,
Engraved by Pieter Baltens de Costere, alias Custodis, 1525-1598
Here depicted with a heraldic shield together with his mother Margaret II and his young wife Matilde de Béthune,
Guy De Dampierre (1225/6 – 1305) was the 22nd Count of Flanders, associated with his mother, Margaret II, from 1251 to 1278, and then alone until his death; he was also Marquis of Namur, by right of marriage, from 1264 until his death.
Pieter Baltens de Costere, known as Custodias (1525-1598)
His career and artistic development and that of the Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder were closely intertwined.
In fact, in 1550-1551 Bruegel worked as an assistant to Peeter Baltens.
He is recognised as one of the main inventors of the genre of the village scene in Flemish and Dutch art.
With certificate of authenticity.
