Comments: This etching of two goats is from an edition of Nicolaes Berchem's "Animalia," sometimes known as "A Man's Sketchbook." Like other artists of the Dutch Golden Age, during which realistic landscape painting flourished, Berchem made these series of etchings to hone his skills in rendering animals. This etching, printed in the mid-17th century, shows two goats, one in full profile and one laying down, facing away from the page. It is in good condition with no chips or tears. Nicolaes Berchem (1620--1683) was a painter of the Dutch Golden Age known for his pastoral landscapes. After studying with Cornelis van Poelenburgh and Jan van Goyen, well-known Dutch landscape painters, Berchem adopted a classicizing style which he applied to the Italian countryside, producing evocative, sun-bathed scenes which found great popularity in Holland. In addition to producing hundreds of his own paintings, the artist also often painted human and animal figures into the works of other well-known Dutch artists. This etching demonstrates the skill and talent of this Golden Age painter.

I want to thank you for your excellent service. I telephoned to inquire about the availability of a book this past Wednesday morning. Michele informed me it was available and took my order at about 11 AM EST. The next day when I got home from work, I was astounded to find that the book had been delivered in the early afternoon -- less than 30 hours after the order. Now, I know that UPS deserves some credit, but such fast delivery would not have occurred if Michele (and perhaps others) had not worked extremely efficiently. The book was well packed and fully meets my expectations, and Michele even got my name right! You have demonstrated a level of service I hope all merchants would meet. Thanks again. - Guy Hasegawa
