[Plate] Arfwedson, Carl Abraham.

[Landskap med byggnader] Dedié à Monsieur Charles Arfwedson par son trés humble et trés obèissant seviteur et fils C: Arfwedson. C: Arfvedson sculpsit 1787.

1787. 28,5 x 32 cm.

A few light stains and and creases to the margins.

An etching depicting a landscape with country houses (Landskap med bygnnader). Arfvedson is supposed to have executed the present image at the young age of thirteen, which seems unlikely given the quality of the work. As a teenager he was a student of the famous engraver Jacob Gillberg. Arfvedson later became chief executive of the swedish East India Company. Rare.
