27. [Dutch school]
Drawing, pen and black ink with grey wash, frameline in black ink, 15,5 x 20 cm, paper underlaid, unsigned (trimmed to frameline; some dirt stains at left, sm. stains at top centre, sm. hole at lower right corner, rust stain and crease at upper right corner).
Glued on mod. cardb. support, under passe-partout.
Nice village scene drawn with great detail, with two men on horseback in the foreground. The rendering of leafs, large array of small figures populating the landscape and the general composition of the picture plain remind of the rare and delicate works made during the short career of Hendrick Soukens (1680-1711).
