Mountain Valley with Fenced Fields, Hercules Segers, c. 1615 - c. 1630

Mountain Valley with Fenced Fields, Hercules Segers, c. 1615 - c. 1630

etching, h 250mm × w 401mm More details

Segers printed this nocturnal scene with a generous amount of plate tone: he did not wipe all of the ink from the etching plate. Next he overpainted the impression with blue watercolour. The valley seems bathed in the light of an invisible moon.
