VAN DOETECUM, Johannes or Lucas. After Pieter Bruegel the Elder

Large Alpine landscape.

Antwerp [= Amsterdam?], Hieronymus Cock, 1553-1556

Etching and engraving, 37,2 x 46,1 cm, laid paper, signed in the plate at lower left corner: "BRUEGHEL INVE/.H. cock excudeb." (trimmed just within borderline, warm yellow paper, some diagonal creases, discoloration of the paper with lighter colour around edges, considerable tear at lower right edge, old restored tear at middle lower edge, poorly restored tear at upper left corner, sm. tear at lower left corner, plate sl. worn).

Late, rather stale impression with loss of some detail in the background.

A man on horseback under a stand of trees on a small plateau in the right foreground overlooking the panorama of the valley before him. The path drops away precipitously in front of him into an extensive river valley where few figures walk down into the valley. One of the landscape prints published by Cock, based upon drawings made by Bruegel after his voyage to Italy. Probably a later edition.
