Three resting cows; two recumbent and one standing cow in the centre, a tree trunk in the left foreground, a shepherd and a girl resting under a tree in the right middle distance
Print made by: Nicolaes Berchem
Although this print does not bear the artist's name, it was probably made by Berchem, since his name appears on later states. This is third state on six. The signature of Berchem was added top left from the fourth state on.
Hollstein / Dutch and Flemish etchings, engravings and woodcuts c.1450-1700 (3. III / VI )
This is an original etching in early state made by Berghem himself.
It is an excellent impression with very good contrast in excellent condition, on watermarked laid paper.
Trimmed outside image border with 2 mm margins.
An important work in the oeuvre of the artist!
