BRAEU, Nicolaes
(active c. 1586-c. 1600 in Haarlem)


Netherlandish printmaker. He was a pupil of Hendrick Goltzius or Jacob Matham. He is often confused with Gillis van Breen, a contemporary pupil of Hendrick Goltzius. However, recent research clarified that Nicolaes Braeu and Gillis van Breen were two distinct engravers.
