Netherlandish School, late 15th century
THE ADORATION OF THE MAGI

Provenance

Jean Gigoux (L.1164);
Hochon (according to Rodrigues sale catalogue);
Eugene Rodrigues (L.897), his sale, Amsterdam, F. Muller, 12-13 July 1921, lot 130, reproduced pl. L (as Netherlandish School, 15th Century, to M. von Weber)

Catalogue Note

In the Rodrigues sale catalogue, it is suggested that the drawing probably relates to a composition by Dirck Bouts, but the figure types also seem reminiscent of the works of the Master of the View of Sainte Gudule.  The watermark, a bull's head surmounted by a flower, is of a type common throughout Germany and Central Europe from the mid 14th century until around 1500.
