River landscape with two men beside a river and thatched cottage


Printmaker: Lempereur, Jean-Baptiste Denis
Draughtsman: Boucher, Fran├žois (After)
Painter: Ruisdael, Jacob van (After)




The attribution of the composition to Ruisdael is confirmed by this plate's similarity to an etching & drypoint by J.J. Boissieu after Ruisdael (dated 1772), which in the final state has an inscription 'Tire du Cabinet de Monsieur Souchay Ecoyer a Lyon'. The printmaker of this plate excluded the boy and the bull in the foreground.
