DE DOBBELEER, Jean-Baptiste

Bonaparte docks of Antwerp.

Antwerp, 1809

Overall pen and ink, with pink, blue and green wash, on laid drawing paper. Various sizes and conditions. Mostly large format. Some signed.

1 large ground plan and 3 smaller plans for the construction of the new "Bonaparte" docks in the north of Antwerp. They show four variations of the same project. The plans include scales, legends and measurements. The actual dry docks were eventually completed between 1811 and 1813, under the direction of Napoleon's main engineer Nicolas Mengin, who must have based his own plans on De Dobbeleer's earlier proposed projects. One of the plans is dated 12 September 1809. Jean-Baptiste De Dobbeleer (1784 - ca. 1856), was a Belgian architect-engineer appointed as "Inspecteur des Ponts et Chaussées du département des Deux Nèthes" and Provincial architect of Antwerp.
Prov. Private collection De Dobbeleer family.
