This painting by Martin van Valckenborch is among the earliest and finest examples of industrial paintings in the Grohmann Museum Collection. The work is emblematic of the collection in that it is at once viewed as both a master work of art and a historical document. The point at which art history and the history of technology merge is a unique space that allows for recreation of historical industries in historical places.
