Velde, Jan van de II (c.1593-1641), after Saenredam, Jansz. Pieter (1597-1665)

Print. Brederode castle/Kasteel Brederode bij Haarlem.

View of the landscape surrounding Haarlem, showing a family of farmers walking in the foreground, fields with cattle in the middle ground and the ruins of the Brederode castle in the background; very detailed etching; signed on the top left: ‘P. zaeneedam Jnvent. / J.V.Velde sculp.’ ; twelve lines of Dutch text below: ‘Hier siet gy Bredero… dicht by Bredero’. This plate with other eleven was meant to decorate Samuel Ampzing’s “Beschryvinge ende Lof der Stad Haerlem in Holland…” published in 1628 in Haarlem. On the left portion of the sky of this impression is to be seen a very light mirrored image of the ruins. Such ink transfer may be explained by the fact that this plate was folded in the middle while resting in the book.

Etching on paper with margin; plate mark: 159 x 236 mm; total: 185 x 249 mm; only state; yellowing paper on the margins, in good condition despite some dirt traces in the middle; signs of some previous mounting on verso; Hollstein 422; Franken 482.
