Ut Hora Sic Dies Nostri Super Terram. Abraham Heckius inv. Et celavit Zoom



Ut Hora Sic Dies Nostri Super Terram. Abraham Heckius inv. Et celavit


Author: Abraham HECKEN.
Place and Year: Amsterdam: Christoffel van Sichem 1608
Technique: Etching (collector's mark on reverse, hardly noticeable stained, trimmed to image and mounted on paper, title mounted separately, in a good condition) 5,5 x 6,5 cm
Code: 52019

This elaborate miniature etching in Manieristic style  represents Nympe and Satyr kissing under a tree, with two putti in the background. The sign around the middle image sais: Ut Hora Sic Dies Nostri Super Terram (As the hours, flee our days on this earth). The etching comes from the series "Konstbuechlein den Goldschmieden dienstlich" and served as a draft for a decoration of smaller oval gold-carved object, probably a sun dial, since the sign on it was commonly used for decoration of objects connected with time.


Abraham Hecken (also Hecke, Heckius and Heeck) was a goldsmith and engraver in Amsterdam at the beginning of the 17th century. Thieme and Becker quote only one one leaf print and two series of 12 sheets by the artist. This print comes from a series "Konstbuechlein den Goldschmieden dienstlich" and served as a draft for a decoration of smaller oval gold-carved object.
