Israhel van Meckenem, also known as Israhel van Meckenem the Younger, born around 1445, was a German printmaker and goldsmith, perhaps of a Dutch family origin. He was the most prolific engraver of the fifteenth century and an important figure in the early history of old master prints. He was active from 1465 until his death in 1503.
