Description: Antique print titled 'Porta Ultrajectina (..) - De Utrechtze-Poort (..)'. Original antique print of the Gate of Utrecht (Utrechtse Poort) to the city of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. This print originates from 'Afbeeldinge der voornaamste gebouwen van Amsterdam', published circa 1708. 

Artists and Engravers: Pieter Schenk / Petrus Schenck ( 1660-1718/19) was born in Germany, but settled in Amsterdam where he first became a pupil of Gerard Valck, the engraver. In 1687 he married Valck's sister and thereafter the Schenk and Valck families were active over a long period with a wide range of interests as print sellers, publishers of books, maps, topographical and architectural drawings and globes.
