Jan Ruijscher (1625-1675) - Enterance to a wood

Description
Jan Ruijscher (1625-1675) - Enterance to a wood
Etching - Not signed - Ca. 1660

Remarkable artist who may have studied with Rembrandt in the 1640's and because of his influence by Hercules Seghers was called 'Young Hercules'

Anthonie Waterloo (1610-1690) acquired some of his plates and reworked them.

Reference:
Trautschold 10 (Ruischer)
Hollstein 10 (First state Ruischer, Second state Waterloo)
Wessely 19 (as Segers reworked by Waterloo)

The first state was solely by the hand of Ruischer and had a broken borderline
The second state had small reworks by Waterloo and strengthened borderline.
The third state had the number 12 upper right

This is a second state.
Excellent impression with full plate border and tread margins on watermarked laid paper. Tipped with top corners on a collection sheet.
