Scherm, Laurens (1689-1701), attributed to after Hooghe, Romeyn de (1645-1708)

[Antique print, etching] The entrance of king William III’s in The Hague in 1691.

The procession and festivities in honor of the arrival of king William III’s in The Hague in 1691. Lettered below, in Dutch and French: ‘Intree van syn Koninglykee Mayesteit in den Hage. / Entree du Roy Guillame dans la Haye le 5 Fevrier 1691’. Likely, the plate has been reworked, especially on the lower part. The signature of the engraver must have been removed. Signed on the bottom right: ‘A. Schoonebeek Exc.’ Schonebeek, the publisher, was a pupil of Romeyn de Hooghe. In the same years – 1691/92 – de Hooghe published with Bidloo a larger version of the publication: Engelands schouwtoneel verbeeldende de voornaamste voorvallen in Yrland van ‘t Jaar 1690 tot de velttogt van S:K: Mayesteit van Groot Brittanie 1691

of which this print is plate nr. 14 (p. 343?). This same plate was used as image in propagandist broadside sheets of the period (see RP-P-OB-76.308 and RP-P-OB-76.307).

Etching on paper, with margins, mounted on cardboard with the tip of one margin; plate mark: 152 x 190 mm, total: 170 x 269 mm; rather tired impression, especially in the central area, yet according to the image of the impression at the Rijksmuseum, the metal plate might have been of lesser quality (see B-0696-53). Otherwise in good condition. Atlas van Stolk 2860.
