A decorative detailed map of Greece and the western part of Turkey and Macedonia. Lavishly coloured and hightened with gold by the master colourist Dirk Jansz. van Santen..

The colouring is attributed to the 17th century master colourist DIRK JANSZ VAN SANTEN (1737-1708). The charts are lavishly coloured using gold for the cartouches and further embellishment and major cities. The scale of longitude and latitude are triple: the variation in tone and colour from red and blue-green alternating with gold yields a lively effect. The figures around the cartouches are painted in a somewhat impressionistic way that is characteristic of Van Santen, with many dark shadow areas to highlight the colours.
Gold dots indicating the major cities.
The map is in a strictly contemporary colouring and of the highest level.
