In 1694 the Amsterdam artists Jan and Casper Luyken published their celebrated ‘Het menselyk bedryf’ (Amsterdam, Jan and Casper Luyken, 1694), a collection of one hundred fine engravings depicting the arts and crafts. Jan Luyken (1649-1712) belonged to the best engravers of the period. His son Casper (1672-1708) assisted with the making of the prints, each depicting a particular occupation, with the name of the profession, one or two explanatory lines above the plate and followed by a six-line poem below.

Engraving on laid paper, with two tiny wormholes in the body of the man (Turfboer). Above the print traces of former tape. Image size: 7,5 x 8,5 cm.
