Still Life with Books, Hercules Segers, c. 1615 - c. 1630

Still Life with Books, Hercules Segers, c. 1615 - c. 1630

etching, h 94mm × w 205mm. More details

While Segers’ stack of books looks unassuming enough, it is entirely original, and may even be the earliest still life in European graphic art. While still lifes frequently feature in 17th-century paintings, they are rarely found in black-and-white (in prints).
