Print. H. Roosing, C. Bakker after A.C. Hauck, GELYCHEID.

Allegory of Equality, 1795. Equality wears an helmet and holds the spear of liberty with a cap between a farmer, a preacher, a soldier, a craftsman, a sailor, and a bishop. This group is free and equal but bound by law: the ribbon that leads to the laws of Justice that is flying on the top left. As the book held by the putto above the group reads: “VRY EN GELYK DOOR DE WET GEBONDEN.” On the left in the background are soldiers, while on the right are Love, Peace and Concord. Above two angels are flying holding a cornucopia. In the foreground, Neptune on the left and Mercury on the right. The print was originally accompanied by an explanation sheet.

Signed and titled at bottom: “A. C. Hauck inv. C Bakker Del. / uit gegeven by J. Groenewoud te Rotterdam. / Hend.k Roosing Sculp. // GELYKHEID.” Marked as “Proefdruk.”

Etching and engraving on paper, trimmed to plate mark; total: 327 x 374 mm; some light foxing, a damp stain on the left margin, traces of previous mounting on verso. Muller 5377a/1.
