Rudolf L. Baumfeld Bequest.

Notes

Catalogue raisonne: Hollstein 10; van Bastelaer 10; Lebeer 5 (as etched by Hieronymus Cock)
Inscription: Recto, in plate, "BRVEGHEL INVE / h. cock excudit." at l.r. and "INSIDIOSVS AVCEPS" below design at center lower edge; Verso, Baumfeld's stamp in red ink at l.r.
Provenance: Rudolf L. Baumfeld, Los Angeles; William Schab, New York
This print is one of a series of thirteen landscapes after Pieter Bruegel published by Hieronymus Cock. The series, dated about 1555-56, was one of the earliest collaborations between Bruegel and Cock. Each print in the series depicts a sweeping "universal landscape" with a narrative scene in the foreground. In this case the scene depicts a bird catcher returning from the hunt with a load of birds. In fifteenth- and sixteenth-century German prints, the motif of the bird catcher with his trap symbolizes the Devil, who sets a trap to snare human souls. The title of the print implies that the subject has this meaning as well. The allegorical meaning of the print is, however, secondary to Bruegel's interest in illustrating sweeping vistas with views of high mountains and the sea.

Subject

hunting; birds; landscapes (representations); valleys (landforms)

The obelisk that anchors the composition had a particular association for the seventeenth-century Dutchman. Obelisks such as this marked the boundaries of a city's jurisdiction, delineating the division between town and countryside. The obelisk in this print was identified by Lugt (Wandelingen met Rembrandt in en om Amsterdam, 1915, p. 153) as one near Spieringerhorn on the road between Amsterdam and Haarlem.

Scope and Content

Woodcut was the earliest printmaking medium to be widely used, primarily for devotional religious images or playing cards, often colored by hand or with stencils. By the end of the fifteenth century major artists began to explore the woodcut's more sophisticated artistic potential. Albrecht Durer was one of the first and greatest artists to recognize the capacity of prints to create a broad market for works of art. He created complex and highly finished designs in both woodcut and engraving. His series of woodcuts of 1496-98 of scenes from the Apocalypse are large, dynamic full-sheet compositions, some freely combining events from different chapters of the book rather than closely following the text.

Subject

religion; dragons; apocalyptic woman; Michael; angels

Notes

This engraving is based on Rosso's drawing of 1530 made for Pietro Aretino, possibly as a presentation piece for King Francis I of France. As such, the design can be viewed as an elegant, virtuoso display of Rosso's artistry, underscoring his willingness to be called to the King's court. Many complex readings have been attached to this long popular theme celebrating romantic love; one interpretation is that the king, as Mars, has abandoned war to devote himself to the peaceful pursuit of the arts and love, symbolized by Venus.

Notes

In the eighteenth century Rome and Venice were essential stops on the Grand Tour of Europe, leading to increased demand for printed views of those cities. In response to this demand, Canaletto published a set of thirty-one views of Venice and its surroundings, dedicated and probably financed by Joseph Smith, British consul in Venice. Canaletto's views comprise both actual vistas and imaginary evocations. Mestre is a harbor just outside Venice.
