Goblet with a man holding a jug, Anonymous, Aert Schouman, 1751

glass (material), h 20cm × d 8.3cm. More details

Aert Schouman probably learnt the art of stippleengraving from Frans Greenwood. An engraver and painter by profession, Schouman was able to create exceptionally fine scenes, which he based on his own designs rather than prints by others. The man on this glass is holding a wine jug. In the same year Schouman also engraved a glass with the motif of a man eating.
