  Painter, engraver and etcher, member of a Netherlandish family of artists, son of Nicolas Hogenberg (1500-1539), an engraver, etcher and woodcutter. He was probably a pupil of the cartographer H. Terbruggen in Mechelen, but later worked in Antwerp producing engravings. It was probably in Antwerp that he executed several maps for the Theatrum orbis terrarum of Abraham Ortelius, which was published in 1570 .He probably travelled to Poitiers in 1560, and to England in 1568. From 1570 he is recorded in Cologne, where he engraved various topographical illustrations and maps.
