A truly apocalyptic print depicting an earthquake and erupting volcano in Japan (‘Jedo’). Panicking people in the foreground, a flood or mudslide to the right sweeping trees and buildings along with it, destroyed buildings and trees, dark brooding clouds and a fiery erupting volcano on the horizon, all these add up to make a truly terrifying scene. Most antique prints present an idealised vision of their subjects, but this view however, hides nothing in its portrayal of a natural disaster. Nieuhoff’s L’Ambassade de la Compagnie Orientale.

Copper engraving. Uncoloured. Very good condition. Good wide margins. The print is clean and crisp. Size: 32 x 23.5 cm.
