The following three lots were executed by Jonas Zeuner (1727-1814).
Born in Kassel, Zeuner arrived in Amsterdam around 1750, although his first known work dates from after 1770. He perfected techniques for engraving in gold and silver leaf, and his jewel-like pictures were greatly admired in fashionable Dutch circles. Zeuner's oeuvre consists mainly of town views, largely of Amsterdam, as illustrated by two of the following three lots, as well as Haarlem, Utrecht and Groningen. However, he also specialised in views of country houses, such as those on the Vecht and the Amstel near Amsterdam, which are generally based on engravings by his contemporaries Jan de Beyer (1703-1780), Simon Fokke (1712-1784) and Wiebrand Hendriks (1744-1831) as well as canal and harbour landscapes and more rarely battle scenes, as depicted in one of the following lots.
