David Loggan (1634-1692), Artist and engraver

Artist associated with 188 portraits
Loggan studied in Danzig (now Gdansk), where he was born, under Willem Hondius and then in Amsterdam, before arriving in London in the mid 1650s. A prolific portraitist, he produced mainly engravings, as well as miniature drawings in graphite on parchment. In 1662, he engraved the title page for the folio Book of Common Prayer. By 1669, he was living in Oxford, and was appointed 'public sculptor' to the university. He drew and engraved all the Oxford colleges in bird's-eye views for his folio Oxonia Illustrata, published in 1675. In 1690, he published Cantabrigia Illustrata, a collection documenting Cambridge University, and was given the position of engraver to the university.
