Anthonie Waterloo creatively reworked and published a number of prints by Johannes Ruisscher, a close follower of the enigmatic Haarlem printmaker Hercules Seghers (1589/90-around 1638). With this view looking down on a village and adjoining fields, Ruisscher faithfully evoked Seghers’ poetic topography, atmospheric texture and invented scenery, which Waterloo redefined with greater, albeit more pedestrian, clarity.
