MATHAM, Theodor
(b. ca. 1605, Haarlem, d. 1676, Amsterdam)


Dutch engraver, part of a family of printmakers. He was the younger son of the better known engraver Jacob Matham, and the brother of the engravers Jan and Adriaen Matham.

He went to Italy and studied under Cornelius Bloemaert (1603-c.1684), and then returned to Haarlem, where he engraved an important number of plates. He is thought to have worked in Paris about 1629-30.

He signed his plates T.M. fecit or T.M. sculpsit.
