Voet, Alexander

Voet, Alexander a Flemish engraver, was born at Antwerp in.1613. He executed a number of plates after the Flemish masters, in imitation of the style of Paul Pontius. He handled the graver well, but his drawing was incorrect, leaving the effect of his prints unsatisfactory. Some of his best prints are the following: after Rubens, Judith with the Head of Holofernes; The Holy Family

Returning from Egypt; The Virgin and Infant; and the Martyrdom of St. Andrew: —after Vandyke, the Entombing of Christ. See Spooner, Biog. Hist. of the Fine Arts, s.v.
