Op de Maese

Op de Maese by Wenceslaus Hollar, Jan Peeters

Artwork Detail

Along with his views of Op de Maese and Dordrecht, this print is a copy of a painting. Known as ‘reproductive prints’, these catered to public interest in pictures by well-known artists.

As a subject, landscape found its most significant early

advocates among Dutch and Flemish artists. The flat

landscape of the Low Countries meant that the sky and

miscellaneous details were emphasised in the place of

dramatic scenery.
