Abraham Ortelius Art

Dutch, 1527-1598

Abraham Ortelius was a Brabantian cartographer and geographer, conventionally recognized as the creator of the first modern atlas, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (Theatre of the World). Ortelius was often considered one of the founders of the Netherlandish school of cartography and one of the most notable figures of the school in its golden age, approximately 1570s–1670s. The publication of his atlas in 1570 was considered as the official beginning of the Golden Age of Netherlandish cartography. Ortelius was also believed to be the first person to imagine that the continents were joined before drifting to their present positions.
