Matthäus Merian the Younger, who had inherited the business after the death of his father, Matthäus Merian the Elder, in 1650, continued publishing a variety of illustrated works until his own death in 1687. The younger Merian, born in Switzerland in 1621, was a portrait painter, etcher, and engraver who traveled in his youth to Amsterdam, London, and Paris. He also lived in Italy and in Nuremberg for a total of eight years before he took over the management of the workshop that in his father’s time had been renowned for producing engraved views and plans of European towns and cities.
