Theodoor Galle (1571 – 1633) after Maerten de Vos (1532 - 1603) Jesus in Purple Robes and Crown of Thorns 43. Exiuit ergo Iesus portans coronam spineam, et purpureum vestimentum. Et dicit eis Pilatus; Ecce homo. Ioan. 19. From Vita, Passio, et Resurrectio Iesu Christi first published 1598, this a later edition published by Joannes Galle (1600-1676) 17.5x22cm Framed From the Gospel of John, Chapter 19 "Then Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. And Pilate said to them, Behold the Man!" Theodoor Galle was the son of Philip Galle, a Dutch publisher best known for his old master prints, from whom he learnt the craft. Theodoor married a daughter of the prominent family of Plantin in Antwerp. His marriage established the productive partnership between the Galle workshop and the Plantin Moretus printing house. A talented workman, Galle quickly became a respected engraver, print publisher and a member of the guild of St Luke, a city guild for artists in 1595. In the years to follow he became the guild's deacon. These particular plates are after paintings by Maerten de Vos, a Flemish painter and draughtsman. His father was Pieter de Vos, from whom he learned. From 1550 - 1558 he travelled in Italy, visiting Rome and Venice and becoming master of the Antwerp Guild of St Luke upon his return in 1558. After 1575 he was mainly engaged in producing print designs.
