    Jacob Matham (Haarlem, October 15, 1571 - January 20, 1631), Dutch engraver and draftsman.

    He was orphaned as a child, and in 1578 his mother remarried the engraver and painter Hendrick Goltzius, who adopted him and made him his apprentice. Married to Maria van Poelenburgh, sister of the engraver Simon van Poelenburgh, he was the father of Adriaen (1599-1660), Jan (1600-1648), Theodor (c. 1606-1676), and Cornelis (1608-1661), the first three also being engravers.

    Matham specialized in reproductive engravings. As early as 1592, he engraved several scenes of the Parable of the Prodigal Son based on drawings by Karel van Mander. In 1603, a group of five engravings based on originals by Pieter Aertsen was dated. From 1611-15, he reproduced several paintings by Rubens. However, his most extensive (and problematic) production is probably the one he did under the influence of Goltzius, engraving designs by him. Many of these engravings bear the initials HG of the master, making it difficult to distinguish the authorship of each.

    In 1613, the engraver Jan van de Velde II was his apprentice.
