Baths of Diocletian, Cock 1562


Small book of Roman Ruins.

One from a series of  20 etchings with engravings published by Hieronymus Cock. and dated 1562 on te htitle plate.

View of Roman ruins of the Baths of Diocletian
several figures in foreground, four birds in the sky.

Riggs 1977 121
New Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish) 239.I (The Van Doetecum Family)
A first state before the number.

After the Praecipua aliquot Romanae antiquitatis ruinarum monimenta, vivis prospectibus, ad veri imitationem affabre designata published in 1551 there was an aditional series of 12 prints, one of them dated 1561 and a series on smaller scale with 20 prints.

The repesentation of the human figures is in my eyes typical for Doeticum and noticable also in his landscape prints after Hans Bol.

The series showed mostly Roman Ruins but also some elswhere in Europe, like the theatre of Bordeaux.

Good impression on watermarked paper with the collection marque of the print seller Van Loock.
