Also known as

Claesz., Allaert; Claessen, Allart; Monogrammist AC

Biography

Netherlandish producer with a monogram AC similar to Heinrich Aldegrever; traditionally but wrongly identified with Allaert Claesz. Took over some of Crabbe's plates, putting his monogram on them, and perhaps a publisher rather than an engraver (see Filedt Kok).
