after Monogrammist IFL

[Pinxter Briev, Pinksterbrief / Pentacost Wish card 1779] Harme Bakker. Wish card for Pentecost (Pinksteren), 1779, 1 p.

Wish card of Pentecost; Engraved frame with handwritten text. The wreath is a rough copy in reverse after that realized by Monogrammist IFL [see Rijksmuseumprentkabinet RP-P-OB-77.689]. Virgin Mary is kneeling in the center at the bottom of the page, surrounded by the apostles, all receiving the Holy Ghost in shape of a flame above their heads. The decoration continues on the sides with floreal motives closed above by two putti holding two branches. In the center a dove representing the Holy Ghost. The text is a short poem signed by Johanna Doncan. Nice exercise of calligraphy. The text reads: ‘Pinxter Briev: / Op het Feest derEerstelingen, / Door Godt zelve ingezet… Johanna Doncan’ Numbered above on the right: ‘N. 53’. A date has been added on the bottom of the signature with a different ink: ‘1779’, however this card might be created earlier, certainly later than 1774. On the verso in brown ink: ‘Waarde Neef En Nicht Harme Bakker’.
