London, G. & W. Nicoll, 1800. Broadsheet (71.0 x 56.0 cm). Aquatint, finished by hand.

A fine large plate of the "Lutschinen" (= Lütschine) falls, south of Interlaken, in Switzerland. Drawn "on the spot" by the French artist Louis Belanger (1736-1816), engraved by the Danish artist Simon Malgo (1745-1800; also known as Malcho), and painted by P. Vanlerberghe from Flanders (Belgium). As far as we know this plate is a piece of art on its own, not meant to be part of a book. In 1790, Belanger, or Bellangé, moved to London and had several exhibitions at the Royal Gallery. In 1798, he moved to Stockholm, where he died. His watercolours and gouaches remained very popular. Today, the depicted torrents are popular among rafters. Some unobtrusive marginal chipping and soiling, one short marginal tear with old repair (visible on verso only). Overall in a very good condition. Impression and colouring strong. Benezit I, p. 523.
