Mastrich. Ville du Duché de Brabant fameuse par les longs Siéges qu'elle à autrefois soûtenus, l'un contre le Duc de Parme, l'autre contre le Prince d'Orange Frederic Henry... c.1685. 430 x 330mm.
Original antique print of the Siege of Maastricht by the French army of King Louis XIV in 1673, part of the Franco-Dutch War (1672-8). After capuring the city the French held it under 1678. Above the scene is a map of the defences of the city within a cartouche of military trophies. Frenchman Daniel Marot (1661-1752) was an architect and furniture designer as well as an engraver. It is likely that he engraved this homage to Louis XIV before 1685, because in that year the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes caused him to join the Hugenot exodus from France. He entered the service of the Stadtholder, William of Orange, and accompanied him to England when he became King William III of England. Marot is now best known for his designing work for William and Mary at Hampton Court in the 1690s.
