About the work
The original oil painting, from which this print was made, was purchased by the National Gallery, London, in 1871 and is titled ‘The Watermills at Singraven near Denekamp’. An etching after the work may have been the ‘Hobbema’ advertised as included in ‘Etchings from the National Gallery’, published by Seeley and Co. in 1874. The publication of this etching by Richard Samuel Chattock was advertised of C. E. Clifford and Co. of 12 Piccadilly in the ‘London Standard’ on 5 January 1888. Chattock's print was also exhibited at the Royal Society of Artists later that year.
