Catalogue Note

The author of this unusual drawing was clearly influenced by the style of Pieter Bruegel the Elder, and also possibly by that of his son Jan (Velvet) Brueghel, but interpreted these influences in a highly personal manner.  There are also echoes of the drawings of Joris Hoefnagel, but the handling is in the end freer and looser than Hoefnagel's.
