Artists and Engravers: Made by 'J. Goeree' after 'Jan de Beyer'. No engraver indicated but many plates in this work engraved by Jan Goeree. Jan Goeree (1670-1731) was a Dutch engraver and poet. He was the son of the Middelburg bookseller Willem Goeree. Born in Middelburg, but soon they moved to Amsterdam. Initially he focussed on painting, assumably a student of Gerard de Lairesse. But he is best known for his engraving skills, depicting mostly emblematic and historic scenes. In 1705 he was commisioned by the Mayor of Amsterdam to design the drawings for the ceiling paintings for the grand hall of the old city hall, which were then painted by J. Hoogzaat and G. Rademaker. Author: Jan Wagenaar (1709-1773), city historian of Amsterdam.
