Rocky Mountain Landscapes, Vast Distances and Mysterious Valleys. Hercules Segers and his ‘Printed Paintings’
(Ilja Veldman) The Low Countries - 2017, № 25, p. 312-314
The work of the painter and etcher Hercules Segers (1589/90-1633/40) has always appealed to the imagination. This chiefly because of his painted and etched landscapes, which make no attempt to depict the reality of the surroundings, but are founded largely on fantasy. A thorough study of Segers’s technique was carried out on the occasion of the special exhibition that was on at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam until early January 2017 and is now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
