THE PROPERTY OF A LADY (LOTS 747 - 754)
The following eight lots were executed by Jonas Zeuner (1727-1814). Born in Kassel, Zeuner arrived in Amsterdam around 1750 although his first recorded work dates from after 1770. He perfected techniques for engraving in gold and silver leaf, his jewel-like pictures being greatly admired in fashionable Dutch circles. Zeuner's oeuvre consists mainly of town views, largely of Amsterdam, Haarlem, Utrecht and Groningen. However, he also specialised in views of canal and harbour scenes as well as country houses, such as those on the Vecht and the Amstel near Amsterdam, generally based on engravings by the likes of Jan de Beyer (1703-1780), Simon Fokke (1712-1784) and Wiebrand Hendriks (1744-1831). The diversity of Zeuner's oeuvre is beautifully represented in the following group of pictures which, in addition to the artist's more familiar topographical scenes, also comprises a portrait of Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790).
