Original 1854 12 3/4 inch x 9 3/8 inch etching and engraving of THE FARM AT LACKEN

Landscape with two peasant women in a field in the foreground, the woman at right carrying a basket with fruits on her head, the left woman handling a large jug, four cows to the left, a wheelbarrow loaded with fruits and vegetables in the lower right, a horseman with two horses walking in a brook and trees to the right, fields and trees in the background.

Engraved by Arthur Willmore (1814 – 1888). Subject and landscape engraver.

From a painting by Peter Paul Rubens (1577 – 1640). A Flemish artist considered the most influential artist of Flemish Baroque tradition. Rubens’s highly charged compositions reference erudite aspects of classical and Christian history. His unique and immensely popular Baroque style emphasized movement, colour, and sensuality, which followed the immediate, dramatic artistic style promoted in the Counter-Reformation. Rubens specialized in making altarpieces, portraits, landscapes, and history paintings of mythological and allegorical subjects.
