Hugo Allard

Hugo Allard Zwickers Gallery

Hugo Allard was a noted engraver and cartographer who worked in Amsterdam during the so-called “Golden Age” of Dutch cartography. Allard worked with distinguished map-makers, including Blaeu, Hondius, De Wit and Visscher. Allard was successful due to the fact that his maps were well designed and finely engraved. His output was relatively small and his maps are rare nowadays. The map of the British Isles, published in 1657, has the original, vibrant colouring and is in excellent condition. Allard’s maps set a high standard of workmanship and accuracy.
