Although he had not yet mastered perspective, Hollar’s
interest in detailed representations of urban life is
evident in these two prints. Both views are full of people
at work and play: merchants trade barrels of wine on
the riverbank and children throw snowballs as decorated
sleighs parade about the town square.
Published just two years after leaving Prague, Hollar’s Four Seasons records views of Strasbourg, where he lived at the time. The seasonal theme gave artists the opportunity to depict activities that were customary atparticular times of the year.
