DE BRUYN, Cornelis. [17th century panorama of Aleppo in Syria]
Aleppo. Delft, c.1698. Two sheets conjoined, total 295 x 1030mm.
A fine panoramic print of the city of Aleppo in Syria engraved by Henrik van Krooneveld. In 1675 the Dutch painter Cornelis de Bruyn (1652-1727) set out from Livorno on a journey through the Levant, publishing an richly illustrated account on his return which was called 'Reizen... door Klein Asia...van Aegypten, Syrien en Palestina.' De Bruyn actually lived in Aleppo with merchants employed in the caravan trade, from May 1682 to April 1683, which explains why these traders are so prominent in the foreground of this print.
