Catalogue Note

Steevens, one of Rudolf's court painters, was a major influence on the development of Netherlandish landscape art, for which influence Sadeler's engravings carry considerable weight. The plates present in this volume offer examples of some of the first "pure" landscape in European art, explorations which proved of momentous importance in the course of the 17th century.
