(b. ca. 1540, Bruxelles, d. 1577, Roma)


Pen and ink drawing
Graphische Sammlung Albertina, Vienna

During his stay in Rome Speeckaert had the opportunity to study in the Villa Farnesina the works by Raphael and his colleagues. This is evidenced by his copy after Raphael's Galatea. His drawing is a modified version of the original work since he left out certain figures and changed the portrait format to landscape.
