[Queen Anne presiding over the House of Lords in Session.] Het Hoog en Lager Huys van Engeland.
R. de Hooge fecit [in image].
[tot Amsterdam, by Pieter Rotterdam, Boekverkooper on de Vugaendam.]
Etching, sheet 450 x 580mm (17¾ x 22¾"). Trimmed, losing text and vignettes below image; vertical folds. Few very minor repairs. A rich impression.
Queen Anne (1665-1714) seated on throne at right, presiding over the Lords. Above two allegorical figures representing Plenty (with a cornucopia) and War (with a shield) hold a scroll showing Anne with Prince George of Denmark besides her presiding over the Commons. Second state (published c.1702) of a print first published in 1689, showing William III on the throne shortly after his coronation. It was subsequently reworked to fit the arrival of successive monarchs up to and including George II in 1727. Etched by Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708), exponent of the late Dutch Baroque best known for his political caricatures of Louis XIV and his prints glorifying William III and the Glorious Revolution. De Hooghe's output as an artist was broad, however, and he had other talents and responsibilities: in 1689 he was placed in charge of obtaining building materials for the royal hunting lodge of Het Loo; the same year he became a Doctor of Law at Harderwijk University; he designed ceiling paintings for municipal buildings and church windows; and he wrote several political and historical treatises.

R. de Hooghe f. et inv. [1667]
Etching, sheet 420 x 540mm (16 x 21¼"). Trimmed, crease.
The signing of the Treaty of Breda, with the delegates in the conference chamber (centre), arrival and departure of the English delegation (top and bottom), and topographical scenes of Breda (left and right). The treaty, signed in the Dutch city of Breda, brought to an end the Second Anglo-Dutch War (1665-7) in favour of the Dutch. With the seas around the south coast of England essentially controlled by the Dutch admiral de Ruyter following the raid on the Medway in 1667, the English were eager to reach a swift agreement. By this treaty the lands of New Netherlands were ceded to the English producing the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania & Delaware. Etched by Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708), exponent of the late Dutch Baroque best known for his political caricatures of Louis XIV and his prints glorifying William III and the Glorious Revolution. De Hooghe's output as an artist was broad, however, and he had other talents and responsibilities: in 1689 he was placed in charge of obtaining building materials for the royal hunting lodge of Het Loo; the same year he became a Doctor of Law at Harderwijk University; he designed ceiling paintings for municipal buildings and church windows; and he wrote several political and historical treatises.

Four etched and engraved sheets, dimensions 150 x 115mm (6 x 4½") to 315 x 200mm (12½ x 8"). All trimmed and tipped into album sheets.
The murders of the De Witt brothers, Cornelis (1623-72) and Jan (1625-72), shown in four panels (originally printed on one sheet). Etched by Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708), exponent of the late Dutch Baroque best known for his political caricatures of Louis XIV and his prints glorifying William III and the Glorious Revolution. Jan de Witt opposed the appointment of William of Orange as stadtholder, and after the French invasion of the United Provinces in 1672 the people called for William and demonstrated against Jan. That same year Cornelis de Witt was suspected of treason and condemned to exile for life. As a result Jan resigned his position as councillor pensionary, but when he visited Cornelis in prison in the Hague, a mob gathered, dragged both brothers outside, and murdered them (as shown here). Offered with description of the events and double portrait of the brothers (probably not by de Hooghe).

Top section of a large satire comprising eleven scenes from the flight of James II and Mary of Modena which precipitated the Glorious Revolution in which William III came to the throne. Etched by Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708), exponent of the late Dutch Baroque best known for his political caricatures of Louis XIV and his prints glorifying William III and the Glorious Revolution. De Hooghe's output as an artist was broad, however, and he had other talents and responsibilities: in 1689 he was placed in charge of obtaining building materials for the royal hunting lodge of Het Loo; the same year he became a Doctor of Law at Harderwijk University; he designed ceiling paintings for municipal buildings and church windows; and he wrote several political and historical treatises.

[The Grote Markt in the Hague, with triumphal arch in honour of William III] Eerepoort opde Market.
[Romeyn de Hooghe, published the Hague by Arnold Leers, 1691]
Etching, 17th century watermark; platemark 330 x 440mm (13 x 17¼"). Fold through centre as normal.
Illustration to Govert Bidloo's 'Komste van Zyne Majesteit Willem III in Holland' (1691), etched by Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708), exponent of the late Dutch Baroque best known for his political caricatures of Louis XIV and his prints glorifying William III and the Glorious Revolution. De Hooghe's output as an artist was broad, however, and he had other talents and responsibilities: in 1689 he was placed in charge of obtaining building materials for the royal hunting lodge of Het Loo; the same year he became a Doctor of Law at Harderwijk University; he designed ceiling paintings for municipal buildings and church windows; and he wrote several political and historical treatises.
