Cornelis Galle was a member of a Flemish family of artists and publishers of Dutch origin in Antwerp. The print workshop and publishing house founded by Philip Galle was one of the most important centres for engraving in Antwerp from the late 16th century to the early 17th. The business was continued by his sons Theodor Galle and Cornelis Galle, who are chiefly known as reproductive engravers after compositions by Rubens and who, with their colleagues in the workshop, were among the first generation of engravers whose reputations were made by this work. Cornelius Galle made engravings primarily for Rubens' book illustrations. Mary, Queen of Heaven, which is dedicated to Rockox shortly before his death, is also his work.
