Rare contemporary portrait of Ortelius, engraved by Crispin Van Passe, based upon a painting of Ortelius by Adriaen Thomaszoon Key (abt. 1544 to 1589), also referred to as Antonio Moro.

Key was a native of Antwerp and one of its leading portrait painters. Bothe were members of the Guild of Saint Luke.

Key's painting was later engraved by Philippe Galle in 1572, which became the model for this later engraving.
