During the night of 9 June 1652, with work already underway on a new town hall, the old one burned to the ground. The event became emblematic of the passing of the old order and the end of the vibrant first period of Dutch nationalism. De Baen’s etching combines the immediacy of a chronicle report with the visual appeal of a conventional fine print. It is a precocious example of the function, even aspects of the style, of modern news and documentary photography.

Jacques Callot inspired his interests and early service to the Medici. While working in Rome in the 1630s, he studied art broadly. In Paris in the 1640s, under the patronage of the Cardinal Mazarin and the Duc de Richelieu, he was further influenced by Dutch etching. His late series transcends their genre to achieve real painterliness and anticipate aspects of eighteenth-century etching. This is the masterpiece of della Bella’s period in Paris. The Pont Neuf was the city’s first modern bridge and a popular meeting place. The near ground is a microcosm of French society, from royal carriages and strolling lovers to ruffians and stray animals. At the center of the bridge presides a statue of Henri IV, who had seen the structure completed in 1604. Beyond spreads a westward panorama of the heart of Paris, its monuments identified in the key below. Apparent only in such early impressions, the whole is pervaded by a heavy atmosphere and animated by a sparkling light. Combining genre scene, historical print, and topographic view, it is an extended metaphor of France itself. The collection contains 111 etchings and three fine drawings by della Bella.
