Kwalificaties
prentkunstenaar, uitgever
He was first and foremost a printer, among others from the 'Antwerpsch Nieuwsblad' since 1818 till 1823. From 1829 he published short-lived devotion prints by the engravers Frans Bernard Waanders and Diederik Gerard Waanders, originating from Amsterdam. he also published a small periodical called ' Maendelyke Ziele-spys' since March 1827, adorned with a 17th or 18th century print, mostly from the former van Merlen stock. Later he went over to publishing wood-engravings, which marked the end of copper engraving as a major craft in Antwerp. (Pauwels et al. 2006)
