About this artwork

This etching is modeled after a painting of the same subject by the Dutch artist Jacob van Ruisdael (1628-1682). This work was owned by the Chevalier de Damery (d 1803), who probably commissioned this reinterpretation. The painting is now in the Staatliche Museen PreussischerKulturbesitz, Gemäldegaierie, Berlin.
