Johann Ulrich Kraus the illustrator

Johann Ulrich Kraus 1655–1719 was an early German illustrator, engraver and publisher in Augsburg.

He was a student of Melchior Küsel, who was in turn a student of Matthäus Merian the Elder. Later Kraus became a partner in the Augsburg publishing company of Melchior Küsel, whose daughter Johanna Sibylla he married in 1685. Kraus became one of the most successful and respected illustrators of his generation in Augsburg.

Unfortunately his business was badly damaged in the War of the Spanish Succession, but he managed to recover and in 1717 is recorded in the archives of Augsburg as a wealthy citizen.
