About this artwork

Gabriel Pérelle’s printmaking career, in the tradition of the Netherlandish landscape painter-etchers, dates to around 1635, when he received a critical com­mission to make a series of prints of Louis XIII’s military conquests. With these works, he established his reputation for the accurate depiction of monuments and sites. He and his sons had a strong and active workshop, producing over 1,500 views of Rome, Paris, and Versailles, which were very popular and published well into the 18th century. Landrecy (now Landrecies) was a fortified village in northern France.
