Lot Essay

The rapid black chalk under drawing and the very swiftly applied grey wash can be compared to an Italianate landscape in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam (inv. RP-T-1902-4604; see M. Schapelhouman, in Adriaen van de Velde. Dutch Master of Landscape, exhib. cat., Amsterdam, Rijksmuseum and London, Dulwich Picture Gallery, 2016, no. 50, ill.).
