The engraver Johann Adam Delsenbach, who was born and died in Nuremberg, was famed most of all for his views of the Imperial City. His three-part masterpiece, the "Nürnberger Prospekte" of 1715, 1716 and 1725, conveys a sense of 18th-century Nuremberg with numerous views of the city's squares, buildings and vistas. Delsenbach also enlivened most of his engravings with diverse sprightly figures.
