Africa. Coenradt Lauuers (after Louis Licherie), Pierre Landry (publisher), Paris, France, 17th century, Engraving
The “Africa” engraving is one of the rare surviving examples of large format prints published in Paris in the 17th century with the aim of making engraving a viable rival to painting.
Usually pulled by elephants, the carriage with the Allegory of Africa is also pulled by a rhinoceros, inspired by Albrecht Dürer’s famous woodcut.
Carved by Conrad Lauwers, from a composition by Louis Licherie de Beurie, it was edited by Pierre Landry in Paris.
The example in Lamego Museum is the only one known to belong to the series entitled “The four parts of the world”.
