Cornelis Dusart
1660 – Haarlem – 1704

Big fair in a village (De Kermis).

Etching, 1685, on handmade paper with watermark: V A C. 26,3:34,1 cm.

With the engraved name and date.

Good impression of Dusart's main graphic work of art, with small margins around the platemark.

Provenance: From a collection in Berlin, bought 1917.

Literature: Bartsch 16; Weigel and Wurzbach 16, II; Hollstein 16, III.

His etchings, which show similar motifs like his paintings, are mainly dated 1685 (some 1695) and are highly regarded as autonomous works of art because of their unique technique. Especially the skilfully worked out transitions from deep shadows to bright luminous areas are well acknowledged. (Compare Thieme-Becker X, p 224).
