Engraving, by the noted AEGIDIUS SADELER (1570-1629), possibly titled "Cottage Partly Built on Piles", from set of six landscapes, after a painting by the noted Flanders Golden Age artist, ROELANT SAVERY (1576-1639). Savery was an important Old Master of the Netherlands, and his original paintings sell for large sums at auction. Sadeler was a talented engraver, in demand by various artists who wished to have their original works translated into graphics. This print has been tightly trimmed to the image, there being no margins, but a tab with the names of the artists remains, at the lower left. The print has been laid down long ago on another sheet of old paper. It is clean save for a small discolored area in the canoe at center right foreground. The print measures 8 1/4" by 11 1/8" (18" by 20" framed); print is loose inside the framing. Bright points of light in a few images are reflections only.
