1607/later printing. Engraving, artist’s and engraver’s names with date in plate lower left, 44.5 x 69.4cm. Old vertical fold to centre, minor crinkles to edges, slight foxing and soiling overall, tears and missing portions to margins.

The Rhode Island School of Design Museum (USA) exhibition catalogue The Brilliant Line, September 2009, made the following comment about de Bruyn’s work: “As engraving became more international in its scope and technique, engravers began to pick and choose styles that met the demands of their own particular market. The Antwerp artist Nicolaes de Bruyn made the conscious decision to engrave in the style of the much earlier engraver Lucas van Leyden [Dutch, 1494–1533]. This delicate, atmospheric approach made up of mostly straight lines was appropriate for de Bruyn’s large-scale landscape scenes, while tapping into a specialised market of Lucas’s admirers. The scale of de Bruyn’s engravings was something new, however. Such large formats may have been intended to be painted and hung on walls as substitutes for paintings.”
