Catalogue Note

Sumowski (loc. cit.) suggests this drawing was done on the spot and compares it stylistically with a drawing by Lievens in the Louvre (Sumowski, op. cit., vol. 7, no. 1712x). A drawing by Anthoine van Borssum in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, appears to have been drawn from the same position as the present study (see Sumowski, op. cit., vol. 2, p. 668, no. 312)
