Large print of the river landscape near the capital of Gelderland. Published in 'Arnhem and his environs' (dating from 1828-1846), an album with six lithographs that can be found in only one Dutch public institution next to the Rijksmuseum. Bottom right numbered (1391) with a numerator; in addition to the album, these prints were also sold separately as souvenirs.
¶ We are probably looking west here (towards Oosterbeek, Heveadorp). Sailing ships can be seen on the meandering Rhine river. On the right bank a farming family with horses (maybe some greenhouses) and on the left bank the harvest (grain?) is brought in. Museum heritage item. The maker (artist) is unknown.
