The Dutch engraver and painter Jan de Bisschop was widely recognized for his two volumes of engravings reproducing famous sculptures. The prints were intended as educational material for beginning artists. Michelangelo’s works formed a large part of these preparatory designs. Bisshop also used drawings by other artists; his representation of Michelangelo’s Aurora (Dawn) was made after a drawing by the Italian artist Francesco Salviati.
