Artists and Engravers: Born in the Netherlands, Johannes Kip settled in England around 1690. He was a topographical engraver most famous for his depictions of country houses in the book; ‘Britannia Illustrata’ on which he collaborated with Leonard Knyff (1707). Although this is his most well known work, he was a prolific artist who worked on many other important projects and commissions, including the illustrations for Churchill’s ‘Voyages’ featured here.
