- Centsprent: Trekken en gedenkwaardigheden uit de levens van beroemde Nederlandsche Mannen. T.

Catchpenny print. Leaf with eight depictions of Dutch men and naval heroes: Jan Steen and his chaotic household, Joachim Zwartenhond, Jan van Galen, Joost Banker, Michiel de Ruyter, Reyer Klaasz., Hugo de Groot (Grotius). The verses under the images of the naval heroes describe their heroic deeds and praise their courage and cleverness. The two illustrations of Jan Steen stand apart from the rest. Although he is praised for his beautiful art, he is mainly presented as a mischievous and chaotic figure. The print projects the chaos of his genre paintings onto his own character and household, ‘een huishouden van Jan Steen’.Inscription in ink on verso: ‘Hedzer Fokkes / Fokkes’.Gorinchem, Jacobus Noorduyn (1819 - 1840), mentioned on the print: ‘Te Gorinchem, bij J. Noorduyn, Drukker en Boekverkooper’; lettered ‘T’ at the top right.l 8 woodcut illustrations (each ca. 10 x 65 mm) on paper; hand coloured in blue and yellow; under each image a 4-line verse; total: 327 x 410 mm; Pro Patria Watermark; folded three times, slightly damaged on the folds.De Meyer p. 261, Boerma p. 800 (Noorduyn T).
