PIETER VAN SCHUPPEN
Antwerp 1627 – 1702 Paris

Trained as a painter in Antwerp, where he joined the Guild of St Luke in 1651, van Schuppen settled in Paris in 1655 and became a pupil of Nanteuil.

He extended his study of the history of printmaking in drawings copied after a variety of prints from different schools. He enjoyed a successful reputation as a portraitist and his engraving of Seiglères was particularly admired. He was made a member of the French Academy in 1663.

JAMES McNEILL WHISTLER R.A., Lowell, Massachusetts 1834 – 1903 London. The Two Ships. Original etching, 1875. This print is for sale, priced £12000

JAMES McNEILL WHISTLER R.A.
Lowell, Massachusetts 1834 – 1903 London

The publication of his hitherto unpublished Thames Set etchings in 1871 renewed Whistler’s interest in the technique.

While in the early 1870’s he largely concentrated on paintings of the Thames in a series of Nocturnes, Whistler began further etchings of the Thames and its shipping in 1875; Katharine Lochnan surmises without necessarily any intention to publish them and few impressions were printed.

The plate of The Two Ships, known in very few impressions, may have been bought by Dowdeswells from the sale of the contents of Whistler’s house in 1879 after he was declared bankrupt. The following year they issued the only edition.

CARL THIEMANN
Karlsbad 1881 – 1966 Herbertshausen

Enrolled as a student at the Academy in Prague, in 1905, after he met fellow student Walter Klemm, who introduced him to the technique, Thiemann became an enthusiast for the colour woodcut.

In 1907 they set up a studio together to make colour woodcuts and the following year moved together to the artists’ colony at Dachau.

JAN VAN DE VELDE II, Rotterdam 1593 – 1641 Enkhuysen. Nox/Night. Original etching with engraving, c1622.

JAN VAN DE VELDE II
Rotterdam 1593 – 1641 Enkhuysen

A draughtsman, painter, printmaker and publisher, van de Velde learnt engraving from Jacob Matham in Haarlem, where he joined the Guild of St Luke in 1614. Later, he settled in Enkhuysen (1636).

Van de Velde created a number of original ‘black prints’ influenced by Goudt. In the Four Times of Day, with their engraved inscriptions, he came particularly close to the manner of Goudt, who had probably been taught calligraphy by van de Velde’s father, as had no doubt van de Velde himself.

The four prints of the different times of day are, aside from literary references in the inscriptions, pure landscape depictions; Dawn and Night perhaps the first engravings of night scenes where the light on the landscape itself is the subject, without an ostensible biblical or mythological theme.
