.. Antique Print of the City of Bolsward by Bendorp (c.1790)

Description: Antique print titled 'T'Stadhuis te Bolswert - T'Hooghuis te Bolswert'. Two views of the city of Bolsward, the Netherlands. This print originates from 'Vaderlandsche gezichten of afbeeldingen, behoorende tot den Tegenwoordigen staat der Vereenigde Nederlanden, in den jaare 1786 (tot 1792) naar 't leven getekend door J. Bulthuis (later: J. Gardiner Visscher naar J.B.) en in 't koper gedruckt door K.F. Bendorp.', published in Amsterdam by H. Gartman (1786-1792).

Artists and Engravers: Carel Frederik Bendorp (Sas van Gent, 1736 - Dordrecht, 1814) was a Dutch engraver, draftsman and painter of mostly city and town views. He was a student of Hendrik Kobell, Dirk Langendijk and Wouter Uiterlimmige. Jan Bulthuis (Groningen, 1750 - Amsterdam, 1801) was a Dutch artist, painter and draughtsman. His painting skills were trained under Jurriaen Andriessen, while his drawing was developed under Johannes Wieringa. While he initially painted landscapes for wall decorations, he later dedicated himself to drawing town and city views. He worked in Groningen until 1780, when he moved to Amsterdam. In 1785 he enrolled in the Stadstekenacademie (City Art Academy) and won a gold medal. His bvest known work is for "Tegenwoordigen Staat der Vereenigde Nederlanden". He also prepared a series of drawings for "Beschrijving van de Zaanlandsche Dorpen".
