R. de Hooghe f. et inv.
te Amsterdam by J. Ottens
Etching, very rare; sheet 425 x 550mm (16¾ x 21½"). Thread margins; glued to backing sheet at top corners. The Treaty of Breda, at Breda Castle (Netherlands) which brought an end to the Second Anglo-Dutch War (1665-1667) in favour of the Dutch. This Treaty ceded the New Netherlands to the British Crown which included the Colonies of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. An important historical American image. The delegates are depicted in the conference chamber (centre) with the British delegations arriving (top) and leaving (bottom). Three small scenes on the left and right provide additional information on the topography of Breda.The print was first published in the year of the treaty but this state, published by Joachim Ottens (b.1663) is a later publication. Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708) was a leading representative of the late Dutch baroque, whose many prints aimed to glorify William III (Stadtholder of the Netherlands and King of England) and to reporting on the wars of the late 17th century.

From the collection of James Watt Jr (1769-1848), son of the celebrated James Watt of steam engine fame. He was also an engineer and, after spending some years in Paris at the time of the Revolution, he became a partner in Boulton and Watt, Birmingham, in 1794. His home was Aston Hall, Birmingham, which he rented from 1819 until his death. (See Oliver Fairclough, The Grand Old Mansion. The Holtes and their successors at Aston Hall, 1618-1864, Birmingham Museums & Art Gallery, 1984). He also designed and built the south half of Doldowlod Hall, Radnorshire, which has remained the home of his heirs and descendants, the Gibson-Watt family.

[Batavie aangerand... De Fabel van Apollo en Dafne... De Fabel van Neptunus en Koronis...]
Ger. Laires Fecit. [Etched by Romain de Hooghe?]
Etching, proof before title and text with very large margins, scarce. 690 x 465mm (27 x 18¼"). Split in horizontal centre fold, laid on card. 'Batavia attacked...' A large allegorical representation on the defence of the Dutch Republic under the leadership of William III of Orange, culminating in the Peace of Westminster, 19 February 1674. His enemies were France and England, in the Franco-Dutch War and the Third Anglo-Dutch War, represented by the cockerel and dog being driven away by the Dutch lion wielding a sword. Two stories from Greek mythology are used allegorically, Apollo and Daphne & Neptune and Coronis, as told by Ovid; however the explanatory text panels have yet to be filled in.
A lettered example of this print is in a De Hooghe collection owned by the Getty Museum, although they do not attribute it specifically to him. The Rijksmuseum example does not name the etcher either.

Syn Koninckl: Hoogheit, de Heer Prince van Orangjen,wert Capite in Generael gemaeckt den 25 Febr: 1672. [Dutch title to banner cartouche; William of Orange taking the oath as the new stadtholder of the Netherlands.]
R. De Hooghe, Amsterdam, n.d. 1675.]
Etching, 180 x 300mm. 7 x 11¾". Vertical fold (as normal). The future King William III (1650 - 1702) behind a table in an interior of room, surrounded by officials, taking oath as the new Captain-General of the Dutch States Army, beneath a royal coat of arms. In view of the threat of an Anglo-French attack, the States of Gelderland wanted William to be appointed Captain-General as soon as possible, despite his youth and inexperience. On 15 December 1671 the States of Utrecht made this their official policy. On 19 January 1672 the States of Holland made a counterproposal: to appoint William for just a single campaign. The prince refused this and on 25 February a compromise was reached: an appointment by the States-General of the Netherlands for one summer, followed by a permanent appointment on his twenty-second birthday.
Maurice of Nassau received the title of "Captain General of the Union" and "Admiral General" in 1587, which became hereditary - like the Stadtholder title, to the Orange-Nassau family, until taken away by the States General in 1786.
The relationship between this print and an almost identical composition of a similar date (with different background) by Bernard Picart (item 16697, showing William taking the oath as stadtholder) is unclear; the one presumably copied and adapted from the other.
