Catalogue Note

Adriaen van Nieulandt the Elder was one of an extensive Antwerp artist family, and was the brother of Willem van Nieulandt the Younger (see lot 137). Few signed drawings by him are known, but the present example is very close in execution to the landscape formerly in the Butôt Collection (sold, Amsterdam, Sotheby's 16 November 1993, lot 106), and to an Italianate landscape of 1649, published by Bernt as a definitive example of the artist's style (see W. Bernt, Die niederländischen Zeichner des 17. Jahrhunderts, Munich 1958, vol. II, no. 443). Two other comparable drawing by the artist, both signed, are in the Boijmans van Beuningen Museum, Rotterdam, (inv. MB 315), and the De Grez Collection at the Royal Museum, Brussels (1913 catalogue, no. 2703).
