From a series of four horizontal oriented landscapes near Rome. This attractive print was originally published ca. 1650. This is a later 18th. c. ed. Provenance: Manuscript annotation in French on reverse: ‘Chez Naudet Md au Louvre 1821’. This item was handled/sold by Naudet, who had his shop at the Louvre in Paris.

Made by ‘Jan Both’ after own design. Jan Both (about 1615-1652) was the main pioneer of Italianate landscape in 17th-century Holland. He introduced to Dutch landscape a style based on the work of Claude in Rome. His Italianate landscape style was developed by such painters as Nicolaes Berchem in Haarlem. He rarely dated his works, and they can be difficult to place exactly. Like the Italianate landscapes of Cuyp, Both’s works were prized by Dutch patricians, who preferred them to the native Dutch landscapes in the manner of Van Goyen.

Condition: Good, given age. Paper trimmed to image. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully.
