Flemish family of artists. The brothers (1) Pieter Huys and (2) Frans Huys both worked as engravers for the print publisher Hieronymus Cock (see Cock, (3)) and the firm of christoph Plantin. Together they were responsible for the engravings in the Vivae imagines partium corporis humani (Antwerp, 1566) published by Plantin. Pieter's own style, however, was best expressed in his paintings.
