Artist Dahlberg Graf (1625-1703)
Erik Jonsson Graf von Dahlberg (1625-1703) was a Swedish field marshal, architect and fortress builder. His artistically remarkable drawings for a large-scale copperplate engraving with views of Swedish places are of great topographical and architectural historical value. With a royal privilege, work on his main work began in 1661, a large geographical and historical depiction of the Swedish territories. 1667–1668 he traveled to Paris to have the first plates engraved for it. This work was temporarily suspended when in 1674 he was entrusted with responsibility for all Swedish fortress construction. It was not until 1684 that he continued work on the topography, now as the official publisher on behalf of the government. His main work, Suecia antiqua et hodierna, was first published in Stockholm in 1716 in three plate volumes with 354 copperplate engravings on 321 partly folded plates and with 13 pages of registers.
