(c.1455–c.1490), Dutch engraver, born in Utrecht. In 1483 he accompanied Canon Bernhard von Breydenbach (chamberlain to the archbishop of Mainz), Graaf Johann zu Solms-Lich, and the Ritter Philipp von Bicken on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Reuwich's sketches, which included a map of Venice and views of Corfu and Rhodes, were made into woodcuts and incorporated by Breydenbach in his Peregrinationes in Terram Sanctam, which was published in Mainz by Peter Schöffer in 1486 and was subsequently translated into other languages, including German (1486), Dutch (1488), French (1488), Spanish (1497), and Italian (1500).
