This pair of exquisitely accomplished mezzotints was done by Johann Peter Pichler (1765-1806) and printed in Vienna. According to Delaborde, "his (Pichler’s) fruit and flower pieces after van Huysum rival the materpieces of Earlom after the same painter." This statement is quite true, however , examples of Pichler’s pair are considerably more scarce. It is interesting to note that Pichler studied mezzotinting with Jacobé in Vienna, who had studied under the great mezzotint masters in London in the 1780’s. The art of mezzotint enjoyed a revival in Vienna in the early 19th century.
