Summary[edit]

Description
English: In 2010 Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen acquired two exceptional sets of coloured woodcuts from a private collection. In this video Peter van der Coelen, curator of the collection Prints and Drawings, tells about this exciting acquisition. The prints date from around 1530 and were made by the German artists Sebald Beham, Erhard Schön, Niklas Stoer and Peter Flötner. One set consists of twenty sheets of ‘lansquenets’, Swiss and German mercenaries who played a major role in the wars being fought at that time. They were conspicuous in their flamboyant dress. The second set, eighteen pictures of Turkish soldiers and their commanders, is of immense cultural-historical value. The Ottoman Empire was in the ascendant. Turkish forces advanced towards the heart of Europe, laying siege to Vienna in 1529. These prints reflect the prevailing fear of the powerful enemy and fascination with the exotically-clad soldiers on horseback or riding a dromedary.
Nederlands: Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen heeft in 2010 twee bijzondere reeksen ingekleurde houtsneden verworven uit een particuliere collectie. In deze video vertelt conservator Prenten en Tekeningen Peter van der Coelen over deze bijzondere aanwinst. De prenten werden rond 1530 gemaakt door de Duitse kunstenaars Sebald Beham, Erhard Schön, Niklas Stoer en Peter Flötner. De ene reeks bestaat uit twintig bladen met ‘landsknechten’: Zwitserse en Duitse huursoldaten die een sleutelrol speelden in de oorlogsvoering van die tijd. Ze zijn uitgedost in de extravagante kleding waar ze om bekend stonden. De andere reeks, met voorstellingen van Turkse soldaten en hun leiders, is van grote cultuurhistorische waarde. Het Ottomaanse Rijk was in opkomst en zijn troepen rukten op naar het hart van Europa, waarbij in 1529 Wenen werd belegerd. De prentenreeks laat de angst maar ook de fascinatie voor de machtige vijand zien, met exotisch geklede soldaten te paard of op een dromedaris.
