Gerald Valck

Gerard Valck (1652 – 1726) was a Dutch engraver, publisher, and cartographer. Born in Amsterdam, he was a student of Abraham Blooteling, with whom he spent several years in London honing his craft, especially by engraving portraits of English nobility. He was especially skilled at mezzotint engraving. Valck often frequently collaborated with his son, Leonardus, and brother-in-law, Peter Schenk the Elder, also a noted map engraver. Under Valck’s name, the group published multiple maps, globes, and atlases.
