Antwerpen, by G.B. Probst after F.B. Werner. c. 1750

Georg Balthasar Probst (1732-1801)

Engraver and print publisher working in Augsburg between 1766-1790. Grandson of Jeremias Wolff and son of Johann Balthasar.
Like his father, Georg Balthasar Probst learned the craft of copperplate engraving and received the title of master craftsman in 1754, at the age of 22. First, together with his father and other outstanding engravers, he participated in the publication of the important series of about one meter wide panoramas of the most important cities in Europe. His main work, however, became later his more than 400 perspective views that he published.
