Jacob de Gheyn II (also Jacques de Gheyn II) (c. 1565 – March 29, 1629) was a Dutch painter and engraver, whose work shows the transition from Northern Mannerism to Dutch realism over the course of his career. De Gheyn was born in Antwerp and received his first training from his father, Jacob de Gheyn I, a glass painter, engraver, and draftsman. He produced 117 engravings for the military manual The Exercise of Armes / "De Wapenhandelinghe van Roers, Musketten ende Spiesen", 1608 while living in Amsterdam. The series is divided into three sets: Marksmen (42 plates), Musketeers (43 plates), and Lansquenets (15th- and 16th-century German foot soldiers;) (32 plates).
