Aegidius Sadeler came from an important family of Antwerp engravers and art merchants. In 1597 he came to Prague and became the most important graphic of the Rudolfinian court there. In September of the same year, Rudolf II. appointed by the imperial rhythm and held this position during the reign of Emperor Matthias and his successor Ferdinand II. The allegory of winter is a modified period record of the frozen Vltava River and the citizens of Prague, both at work and having fun on the ice.
