Geertruyt Roghman - The Old church in Muiderberg, from a series Pleasant Landscapes
Close to dramatic in its austerity, the simple view of the church in the village of Muiderberg is the work of the woman engraver Geertruyt Roghman. The print formed a part of topographic views of Amsterdam and its environs, which she produced in collaboration with her brother Roelant. The title of the series suggests that in their day such scenes were regarded as picturesque and pleasant.
