About the artwork

Edo period, early 19th century

The standing Dutchman looking through a telescope and a dog at his feet.

H. 44.5 cm x W. 15 cm

Note:
The Dutchman most likely is Jan Cock Blomhoff, Opperhoofd in Deshima from 1809 till 1813 and again from 1817 till 1824. In a circle on his hat are written the initials AH or AP upside-down, the meaning of which is unclear.
