View of Amersfoort, Hercules Segers, c. 1615 - c. 1630

etching, h 85mm × w 301mm. More details

Characteristic for this print is the tremendous sense of space, in which the city is virtually subsumed in the natural surroundings. Interestingly Segers took the trouble to transfer the city profile to the etching plate in reverse. The impression thus shows the buildings in the correct direction.
