Very decorative and rare panoramic town-view of Völckermarckt in Kärten.
The engraver and publisher of prints, Mrs. Anna Beek of the Hague, enlarged the print and mounted it on larger paper: she coloured it in pastel colours, adding extensive clouds and brilliant yellow borders. This way of enlarging prints is also known from the famous Van der Hem/Prinz Eugen Atlas and those in the former Royal print-collection kept in Jemniste in Czechoslovakia. Very rare. The print was originally published by Merian.

Anna Beek was commissioned by Willem III of Orange, inbetween 1690 and 1700 and produced for him a collection of 10 volumes of plates. The 10 volumes are bound in richly gilded bindings and have all the Dutch Roral coat-of-arms of arms.
These volumes came on the market in the 1960's and were spilt up and sold in the European trade in the 1960's.
This plate originates from one of the volumes, it is a unica and made for and in the collection Willem III of Orange.
