About this artwork

Karel Dujardin, like Jan Both, painted Italian views and made over 50 prints after he returned from Italy
in about 1652. In this print, the plundering troops inspect the dead or dying on an unspecified battlefield. It was extolled by the 20th-century English etcher Walter Sickert as "perhaps the etching of the world … for clarity, concision and vivacity."
