Otto Van Veen emblems – Impressive, folio engravings!

 

Otto van Veen was a 16th-century Belgian emblematist who produced several different emblem books including ‘Amoris Divini Emblemata’ which first appeared in 1615. This book was a classic example of Van Veen’s attention to detail in his illustrations through the use of humanistic views. According to Montone, Van Veen’s emblem books,

“functioned not only as a model for other Dutch and foreign emblem books but also as a source of inspiration for many artists in other fields.”

This rather curious early 18th-century Spanish printing of the emblems of van Veen is paired with two other famous Greek texts – ‘The Tablet’ by Cebes and ‘Enchiridion’ by Epictetus.

 

Enchiridion by Epictetus is an advice manual focused on the Christian and Pagan philosophical circles of daily life.

 

Written during the time of Socrates, ‘The Tablet’ by Cebes is a dialogue taking place in a temple between two individuals contemplating the representation of symbols and allegory in art found on a tablet. EXQUISITELY ILLUSTRATED with over 100 engraved plates!
