Portrait of the German Prince Wolfgang Wilhelm (1578-1653), who was Count of Pfalz-Neuburg and Duke of Julich.
Wolfgang Kilian (1581-1662) was a German engraver and member of the Kilian family of engravers in Augsburg. After the death of his father Bartholomaus Kilian the elder, Kilian's mother Maria Pfeiffelmann married the engraver Dominicus Custos. Custos taught both Kilian and his brother to engrave. Between 1604 and 1608, Kilian travelled in Italy and worked in Venice, Mantua, and Milan. On his return he married, and continued to produce prints with his family. He was the father of the engravers Bartholomaus the younger and Philipp.
