Collaert’s “Night” (Rijksmuseum)

Nacht, Adriaen Collaert, after Maerten de Vos, 1590 – 1597. Rijksmuseum, Amserdam. (PD)

Everything about this print is marvelous. The dreamy night god. The deep dark of the town. The scattered lights from torches and doors and windows.

The print is held at the Rijksmuseum. Check it out here.
