Godefridus Johannes Hoogewerff (Amersfoort, June 20, 1884 - Florence, March 25, 1963) was a Dutch art historian and professor at Utrecht University. In 1932 he published under the pseudonym "A.E. Drijfhout" together with graphic artist M.C. Escher, with which he very was a friend, the booklet "XXIV emblemata dat zijn zinne-beelden", with proverbs written by him (in Latin) and poems (in Dutch) with prints (woodcuts) by Escher. He made sure that Escher, whom he admired but who had not yet gained any fame at the time, got this through organizing exhibitions and making contacts. we can send a photograph.
