Lot Essay


Three of the four saints in this pair of sheets can be identified by their attributes: the club of Jude Thaddaeus, the arm lost by Alena of Forest (near Brussels), and the cross and lamb of the Baptist. The use of parallel hatching, especially evident in the figure of Saint Alena, points to an artist in the wake of Hugo van der Goes; compare, among other works, a design for a glass roundel in the Frits Lugt Collection, Paris, inv. 4023 (F. Koreny, with E. Pokorny, in Early Netherlandish Drawings from Jan van Eyck to Hieronymus Bosch, exhib cat., Antwerp, Rubenshuis, 2002, no. 36, ill.).
