Description

Three small engravings each depict the principles of landscape. In the first, a rural, thatched roof cottage sits atop a hill surrounded by trees and twisting branches; in the scene underneath, an old stone tower stands at the edge of still water, surrounded by overgrown trees. In the second, an old, twisting tree with gnarled roots and curving branches is shown in the process of losing its leaves against a blank background. The third is a close view of a rocky shoreline, with earth, rocks, and uprooted trees leading to the edge of the water.
