Catalogue Note

Most likely the design for a painted glass panel, this drawing can be compared in style with other such designs by Jan Swart van Groningen, such as those depicting Lot and his Daughters and Susanna and the Elders, both in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.1  Although the pen lines in the present drawing are slightly finer than is typical of Swart, the drawing is in other respects very comparable with the two in Amsterdam, where the handling in the trees, the facial types and even the exaggeratedly long fingers are all extremely similar.
