[Antique print, etching and letterpress] De Brouwer / The Brewer [series title: Menselyk Bedryf].

A brewer working outside a large brewery. He is pouring brewed beer from a large copper pitcher through the bunghole into six wooden beer kegs that rest on a wooden rack. Behind the brewer a second worker is standing on the top of a wooden tower, using a crane to lower a bucket into a water ship at the edge of the canal. The water will be eventually poured through the water pipe into the brewery. Other barrels are piled ouside the brewery. Page nr. 99 from the ‘Menselyk Bedryf’ a popular publication describing the various working activity of men with plates by the brothers Luyken. Titled above: ‘MENSELYK BEDRYF. / DE BROUWER. / De laaving staat gereed, Waar is het doorstend leed?’ text continues below the picture: ‘Als dorst en dranck malkaar ontmoet, / Is’t bitter d’oorspronch van het soet: / ô Ziel!, ’t begeeren en het geeven, / Uw dorst, en ’s leevens springfontein, / Zal eeuwige verkwikking zyn; / Die weelden lust, zoek sulk een leven. / MAT-…’
