Maerten de Vos (1532-1603) was a Flemish painter and draughtsman. He was a pupil of his father Pieter de Vos and a follower of Frans Floris in Antwerp. Between 1550 and 1558 he travelled in Italy, visiting Rome, Venice and possibly Florence. In 1558 he became a master of the Antwerp Guild of St Luke. Between 1571 and 1572, he was dean of the Guild. From 1575 he mainly produced print designs. He was the father of the artists Daniel de Vos (1568-1605) and Maerten the Younger (1576-1613).

Adriaen Collaert (1560 - 1618) was a Flemish engraver and major publisher, active in Antwerp. He was a member of the Guild of St Luke, and worked with Gerard de Jode, Eduard Hoeswinckel and Hans van Luyck. His works are known for their anatomical correctness as well as its physiognomical expressiveness. Some of his original plates are engraved with a cipher.
