Johann Anton de Peters

(1725–1795, Cologne)

Madonna and Child. Etching. 9.3 x 6 cm. 1760. Heller-Andresen 2.

The printed oeuvre of Johann de Peters comprises only five etchings, four of which are reproductive prints after drawings by Boucher. The present print is based on a composition by the artist himself and is of greatest rarity. The delicate, refined little etching was done in 1760 and probably represents the artist’s first attempt in printmaking. A very fine, tonal impression, printed on the full sheet. Minor ageing, otherwise in immaculate condition.
