Description: Designs for a Title Page and Four Designs for Illustrations of Biblical Subjects. Abraham Bloemaert (1566-1651) & Otmar Elliger I (1633-1679). Pen and brown ink and various shades of brown and grey wash heightened with white over black chalk. title page size 8 1/2 x 6 1/4 inches, illustration size each approx. 5 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches, 22 1/4 x 36 inches total framed size. This fascinating series of watercolors by Otmar Elliger I was completed for an illustrated edition of the Bible, as indicated by the title which reads: Cabinet Der Uytmuntende Teekeningen Behelsende de Heylige Schrift Uytvoerig met Oostindischen Ink Gewassen Door Othomar de Elliger. The titlepage is in fact signed by Abraham Bloemaert, the famed Dutch artist of much earlier birth.
