Anthonie Waterloo (1609 - 1690)
Draughtsman, painter and etcher of mainly landscapes. Born at Lille, in Amsterdam in 1621; later in Leeuwarden and Maarssen; retired to an almshouse in Utrecht in 1678 where he was also buried. .
He is believed to be an autodidact. Published his own plates. Lived in Amsterdam in the time of Van Ruysdaal, Safltleven and other important masters. His etching contains motifs he observed in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy. He created 136 etchings and built an important reputation. This etching has to date from around 1650, during the highlight of the realistic landscape sets in the Netherlands. The picture is made in etching technique but it is known that Waterloo updated details with the burin.

Here one of his most valuable, larger plates.

  • Good seller. There is a problem here with shipping through a courier. Several parcels have been returned to the sender because I've never known a thing from or about the courier
