The work

Battle of Zama - Oil on panel
Cornelis Cort 1533 - 1578

Cornelis Cort was a Dutch printmaker and draftsman known for his contributions to the art of printmaking. Originally from Hoorn, Cort began his artistic career under the guidance of Dirck Volckertsz Coornhert in Haarlem. His first known engravings were published in Antwerp.

Cort moved to Venice, where he worked on works by artists such as Titian, creating engravings of famous paintings such as "The Battle of Zama". His skill in printmaking took him to Rome, where he founded an art school. Here, he influenced artists such as Agostino Carracci, Nicolaes de Bruyn and many others, modifying the linear style of Marcantonio Raimondi with a brilliant touch of the burin.

During his career, Cort also visited Florence, where he came into contact with the Medici family. He spent the last year of his life in Rome, where he died. His relationship with Hieronymous Cock and Titian is highlighted in a letter addressed to the latter by Dominick Lampson of Liège.
