Printdrawing on laid paper (printdrawing is a graphic technique that resembles drawing, and uses combinations of etching, roulette, stipple engraving, and aquatint to accomplish this), sheet size 157 x 193 mm., made by Bernard Schreuder (c. 1745-1780) after Adriaen Brouwer (1605-1638), and published by Cornelis Ploos van Amstel (1726-1798) in 1775. Ploos van Amstel was an avid collector of Dutch drawings, and is credited with inventing the technique of printdrawing. Schreuder worked in the printing house of Ploos van Amstel.
In good condition, cropped to the image edge (as always, but lacking the original support). Damage and minimal paper loss in the top right corner.
