The Theatrum Pictorium (1660)[1] is book by Antwerp artist and court painter David Teniers II (1610–1690). It is considered the first illustrated printed catalogue of a major paintings collection. This book contains etchings that reproduced 243 paintings in the collection of Archduke Leopold Wilhelm, the ruler of the Southern Netherlands. The selection of paintings highlighted the archduke’s sixteenth-century Venetian masterpieces, largely acquired from the estate of the Duke of Hamilton.
