17th Century Etching by Dutch Artist Jan Luyken (1649-1712)

This rare original etching was created in 1685 by the Dutch artist Jan Luyken (1649-1712), and measures 14 ½" x 12", and 21 ½" x 19" framed. It is entitled "Slag by Bergen in Henegouwen" and it illustrates the battle between French and Belgium forces at the Battle of Henegouwen.

The piece is in excellent vintage condition with just very minor and stable age mold to parts of its surface. He was born in Amsterdam and learned engraving from his father Kaspar Luyken. Luiken also became a renowned engraver. In his twenty-sixth year, he had a religious experience that inspired him to write moralistic poetry. This etching is appears to be identical to the work in the Amsterdam Museum. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have regarding this significant etching.
