Artist: Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708)

22,00 x 29 cm on plate border

This plate from 'Les Indes orientales et occidentales, et autres lieux.' was published by Pieter van der Aa in Leiden in 1710. The work is extremely rare. It was later re-used in the very scarse: 'La galerie agreable du monde (...). Tome premier des Indes Orientales.', published by P. van der Aa, Leyden, c. 1725. It is said that only 100 copies were printed. Ref: Koeman Aa9; Phillips 2780 note.

Romeyn de Hooghe (1645 - 1708)
Painter, sculptor, medal maker, goldsmith, etcher, and publisher. Born in Amsterdam, a nephew of the painter Pieter de Hoogh. In 1668 in Paris, from 1687 in Haarlem. Opened drawing school in 1688. Propagandist for William of Orange. He was a important renewer of pictural art revolting against the dull French style of his period.
