mounted in Passe-Partouts Depicting 'before-and-after' views of the town of Pleurs in Switzerland. In 1618 a landslide totally wiped out this town of 20,000 inhabitants, and was widely seen as a symbol of God's wrath.
'Meditatio Quotidiana' is captioned 'Pleurs in flore'; 'Vento, Fortuna et Damno' is captioned 'Pleurs mit dem Bergfall'. Both undoubtedly from Eberhard Kieser's Thesaurus philopoliticus (1623-onwards), or the 1638 re-issue titled Sciographia cosmica.
Very good condition, mounted in simple passe-partouts.
