Collection contains 59 prints on 67 sheets. Some are signed by Romeyn de Hooghe, some are attributed to him, and several are
in his style or copied after him. Most relate to contemporary political, historical events and figures in Europe, and depict
elaborate scenes with many details of costume, settings and objects.
Romeyn de Hooghe was born in Amsterdam in 1645 and worked there until c.1680-1682, when he moved to Haarlem, where he died
in 1708. For several Netherlandish provinces, he created interior architectural paintings and other works. In 1662 De Hooghe
was invited by Adam Frans van der Meulen (1632-1690) to Paris, where he etched the baptism of the Dauphin in 1668. There he
met King Jan III Sobieski of Poland and was knighted by him in 1675.
