Artist associated with 40 portraits
Compton Holland first came to prominence in 1616, when he published a series of portrait engravings by Simon de Passe that revolutionised English printmaking. Two years later, with his brother Henry Holland, he published the Basiliologia, the famous series of portrait engravings of English kings and queens. Holland also published plates by Francis Delaram, as well as topical prints of monsters and salacious anti-Catholic propaganda.
