- Cologne banker, art collector, patron, travelled to England in 1636 or early 1637, then to Paris in 1638; naturalized in 1642. Due to financial difficulties he sold his first collection of drawings to Louis XIV in 1671, forming the base of the royal collection which is now kept in the Louvre. Jabach's second collection was dispersed after his death (see B. Py, 'Everhard Jabach Collectioneur (1618-1695), Les Dessins de l'Inventaire de 1695', Paris, 2001).
In 1666 he started the project of having his collection of drawings translated into prints. This set is known as the 'Cabinet Jabach', or 'Recueil Jabach': see Heinecken, 'Idée d'une collection d'estampes', 1771, pp.104-5, and Christine Raimbault in 'A l'Origine du livre d'art', C.Hattori et al. eds, Milan 2010, pp.49-63.
