Description:

C.17th engraving of the villa of Julia Agrippina (AD 15-AD 59), referred to as Agrippina the Younger, was a Roman empress and one of the most prominent women in the Julio-Claudian dynasty, on Lake Lucrinus, next to the Bay of Naples. Her father was general Germanicus, one-time heir apparent to the Roman Empire under Tiberius; and her mother was Agrippina the Elder, a granddaughter of the first Roman emperor Augustus. She was the younger sister of emperor Caligula, the niece and fourth wife of emperor Claudius who succeeded Caligula, and the mother of emperor Nero, who succeeded Claudius.

Marco Sadeler (1614 - 1660)

Marco Sadeler (1614–1660) This series capitalised on the renewed interest in the monuments of classical antiquity which reached its climax in sixteenth century Rome. Marco Sadeler, whose name appears on the plates, was an engraver and print seller in Prague in the early 1600’s and probably the nephew of Aegidius.
