Antique Swedish Print

Although a decorated field marshal in his time, Erik Dahlberg is best remembered today for his artistic works— specifically his depictions of 17th century Sweden. This particular piece, titled in Latin “Relic of an Ancient Citadel: ROMLEBORG,” features a detailed drawing of the ruins the Romleborg Castle, a 14th century fortress destroyed during the Engelbrekt Rebellion. Located near modern day Jönköping, this stronghold sat at the crossroads of several major waterways and landmarks, all which are neatly labeled by the artist. Like much of his work, this topographic print was not published until the early 1700s, after Dahlberg’s death. It’s displayed just as we found it, with its original gilt-covered cherry wood frame, glass and aged matting and backing.
