Renold or Reginold Elstrack (Elstracke) (1570-in or after 1625), Engraver

Artist associated with 149 portraits
Renold Elstrack was the foremost English engraver of his time. His first dated plates were made in 1598 and he produced mainly maps and portraits. Elstrack's portraits of the royal family bear no relation to any known painting and it is thought that he composed them himself; their beauty and rarity made them highly sought after. Elstrack probably never published himself, but worked for a number of London publishers, initially for the partnership of John Sudbury and George Humble, and from 1616 for the newly established firm of Compton Holland.
