Comments: This etching of a cow 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 image, printed in the mid-17th century, shows a cow in full profile, standing in a somewhat barren landscape. 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 Dutch artists. This etching demonstrates the skill and talent of this Golden Age painter.

As an Interior Decorator I am on the constant lookout for source material for my clients. I recently completed a Studio pied a terre in the Georgian period for Mr. David Brown at Lincoln Center. That is, we were almost finished with only the artwork to be designed and purchased. I have a passion for antique architectural prints and I can't believe that I didn't know about Argosy Books. After all Designers don't really like to share their finds with others. I was in a cab, looking out the window as we passed by Argosy Books and noticed a fine selection of framed prints hanging in the window. I had found my oasis! I now head first to Argosy for all my print work and framing. What a treasure and a real lifesaver for design business! Thanks eternal. - Aaron James
