Eastern Mediterranean Sea by Jean Zuallart. 1604

Jean Zuallart (1541-1634)

Jean Zuallart was mayor of the town of Ath in Hainaut, Belgium, from 1584 to 1634. He made the pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 1586. He was in Rome in 1585, accompanying Philippe de Mérode, Baron of Frentzen, in his tour of Italy and Germany when de Merode suggested that they travel to Palestine. To gain an income, Zuallart learned to draw in four months and was thus able to illustrate the account of his pilgrimage, thus setting it apart from similar works and ensuring a success that led to several reeditions.
