Dutch Bible Scenes - 18th Century Engraving, The Israelites Crossing The Jordan
DescriptionA fine 18th Century engraving showing the Israelites crossing the river Jordan. This is a very striking engraving with the middle ground figures swathed in shadow from the large items they are carrying. This engraving was delineated by Gerard Hoet (1648-1733) and sculpted by C. Huibertz (dates unknown). The engraving has an inscribed lower edge saying the title of the piece in six different languages and the Bible verses to which it refers. The artist has signed in plate. On wove.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. The original plate lines are in tact. There is a crease to the lower left edge and centre of the page and a tear in the centre at the lower edge.

Sulis Fine Art is eager to present this handsome collection of original early 18th Century Biblical engravings, published in the 1720 'Figures de la Bible' by Dutch Engraver Bernard Picart. Of the 212 plates in the original volume, 79 were by Picart's hand, with many others by a range of Dutch engravers working in Amsterdam at the time. Each is entitled in six different languages.
These lavish, highly figurative illustrations represent the continued artistic accomplishments of the Netherlands in the 18th Century, decades on from the Dutch Golden Age.
