Velde, Jan van de, II
Title to Third Part of the Sixty Landscapes (Title to the 3rd part of the series of 60: ‘Sixty Landscapes”)
1616

Van de Velde is known for producing many of his landscapes in series, of which this title page is the third instalment of a large four-part series. Print production was often collaborative, which is made evident in the ornate cartouche, identifying Van de Velde as author and Claes Jansz. Visscher as publisher. Surrounding the prominent cartouche, the landscape invites the viewer on a simulated journey through an idyllic countryside.
