Overschie was a village in The Netherlands, and is now a neighbourhood of Rotterdam. In the foreground a ferry crosses the river, carrying a horse and three figures. By Paulus van Liender (1731 - 1797); this print was also published in Paris by Pierre François Basan, but this appears to be an Amsterdam issue. "Unlike many Dutch artists of the 1700s who remained attached to a style they developed at the outset of their career, Paulus van Liender's art continually evolved. His earliest works were traditional topographic views but by the 1780s he was producing distinctive forest interiors. " Getty.
