Sluyter, Dirk Juriaan (1811-1886) and Sluyter Dirk (1790-1852) after several artists
[14 Steelengravings/staalgravures] Collection of 14 prints, two very early works by Dirk Juriaan Sluyter.
Fourteen plates by Dirk Juriaan Sluyter and his father, Dirk Sluyter. Two engravings are marked as ‘eerste- ‘ and ‘tweede gravure’, featuring the signature and the date of birth of D.J. Sluyter, thus testifying that these two tronies or character-heads were realized when the artist was only 17 years old; the first is signed on the bottom right: ‘D.J.S. f. / 1828 / Geb. 1811. 14 Nov.’ and the second, on the bottom left: ‘DJSluyter sc. / 1828 Geb 14 Nov.’; Other eight plates appear to be first states, as any inscription is missing; the subjects are genre-like or history-related, as well as a portrait of a man seated at a table; A title page, ‘Cinq-mars, of eene zamenzwering onder Lodewijk XIII naar het Fransch…’ published in Amsterdam in 1830, featuring a vignette; two chine collé and another print with Christ on the cross, after A.C. Kruseman and one after C. Rochussen.
Steel engravings on paper, some chine collée. Various sizes and formats, despite some staining and light foxing in some impression, in good state. Early states, with some exceptions. Date of prints ca 1800-1850.
