Lycurgus Demonstrares the Importance of Education

Koninklijke Bibliotheek, The Hague

This print appeared in the emblem book 'Emblemata Horatiana', conceived as a mirror for princes. The best known edition was published in 1646, with the Lycurgus emblem as a frontispiece. The book was dedicated by van Veen to the queen mother of France expressing the hope that it would be useful for the education of the young Louis XIV.
