Roelant Roghman - The Seaside near Muiderberg, from the Pleasant Landscapes series
Close to dramatic in its austerity, the simple view of the church in the village of Muiderberg is the work of the Amsterdam painter and engraver Roelant Roghman. The print comes from a series of topographic views of Amsterdam and its environs, which he produced in collaboration with his sister Geertruyt. The collection's title suggests that in their day such scenes were regarded as picturesque and pleasant.
