Goltzius (after): Touch, Sight, Smell, Hear

Hendrich Goltzius (1558-1607), after, engravings c. 1740, Four of the Five Senses, engraved by Elisabeth Marlie Lepicier (1714-1773), after engravings by Jan Saenredam (1565-1607). References: Nagler VIII p. 391; Hollstein XXIII p. 78. In very good condition, printed on a cream laid paper, with small margins, 8 1/4 x 6 inches each.

Fine impressions. Saeredam engraved these subjects after Goltzius in reverse from the original paintings; Lepicier copied the engravings in reverse from Saeredam, thus producing “corrected” impressions, in line with the Goltzius compositions.

The engravings are: La Vue (sight); L’Ouie (sound); Le Toucher (touch), and L’Odorat (smell).

The engravings were published by Louis Surugue (1686-1762).
