One of the engravings of the first edition of the first emblem book by Otto Vaenius, the tutor of Rubens.
Q. Horatii Flacci emblemata was first published in 1607. This is from the second edition of that year (1607) with the multilingual verses on the backside. In deviation of later editions, this one has no text at all on the front of the page.
On basis of the preparatory sketches for the book that have survived, the co-work between Vaenius and the engravers have been studied. The Q. Horatii Flacci emblemata was a joined effort of printers, learned commentators on Horace, engravers and Vaenius himself.
Otto Vaenius (1556-1629)
or Otto van Veen, was trained as a painter and humanist. Born in Leiden in 1556, he fled to the southern Netherlands in 1572 because of the political. In Liege he studied for a few years under Dominicus Lampsonius, and then left for a five-year stay in Italy. After his return to the southern Netherlands he stayed in Liege, Brussels and then settled in Antwerp. Vaenius always tried to maintain favour with the Court. Until the return of his pupil Rubens from Italy, Vaenius was the leading painter in Antwerp.
He worked for Rudolf II in Prague, was court painter of Alexander Farnese, court painter of Albrecht and Isabella. He was perhaps the most influencial tutor of Pieter Paul Rubens.In his later years he turned to producing emblem books, his first being Q. Horatii Flacci emblemata (1607. His designs were mostly engraved by his younger brother Gysbrecht.
