Moses and the Israelites Beside the Red Sea, Moses Leading the Israelites out of Egypt
1553-1619, Flemish

A rare early engraving by Hieronymus Wierix after Pieter van der Borcht, printed with an image on both sides of the sheet. Each image measures 4 1/2 x 2 7/ 8 inches, 1583, a good impression on a very early laid type paper, published by 16th century book printer and publisher Christophe Plantin. Both images are scenes from Exodus; one side is titled 'Moses and the Israelites Beside the Red Sea", the other is "Moses Leading the Israelites out of Egypt".


The Holy Trinity

Engraving by Hieronymus Wierix after the painting by Jan van der Straet, published by Philip Galle before 1612, cat: Hollstein-410. A copy of this print is in the collection of the British Museum, London.

Painting

Travelers on a Country Road

This is a very fine original 19th Century painting in the style of Marinus Adrianus Koekkoek (1807-1868). Oil on panel, 7 1/4 x 8 7/8 inches, c. 1850, unsigned, in an ornate period gilt frame. Although this painting is unsigned, the style and subject are very reminiscent of the work of Dutch artist Marinus Adrianus Koekkoek, who was known for his delicately painted atmospheric landscapes.
