Plancius Planisphere 1604 Wall Map. A fabulous reproduction of an early 17th century map of the world. Providing wonderful historical provenance as well as being a great piece of wall art, the map is placed between cherry wood slats, and has been giclee printed on durable fabric. The original in the Bibliotheque nationale de France, but this is a wonderfully detailed reproduction and a fantastic work of art.
Moment in History
An incredible effort and one of the most decorative and detailed maps ever made, Plancius added all his latest discoveries to his map. Interestingly, this map shows empty cartouches because Plancius was probably still trying to get a royal sponsorship for his work when this print was made. The map is a moment in history, and an insight into the Renaissance mind.
Renaissance culture was highly appreciative of the concept of the universal man. Studying and mastering multiple disciplines was admired. Petrus Plancius was such a man. He was both a practicing theologian and a skilled cartographer, and even became an astronomer. Plancius made his famous large size wall map of the known world in the late 16th/early 17th century.
