Catalogue Note

Although it has not been connected with any known painting by the artist, this drawing is entirely typical of the drawing style of Hendrik de Clerck, who studied in Rome, but from 1594 on enjoyed a long career as court painter in Brussels, first to Archduke Ernst and then to Albert and Isabella.  He executed many altarpieces and other commissions for the court, and for guilds and churches around the city, for one of which this must be the design.  The majority of the artist’s surviving drawings are housed at Schloss Wolfegg, and significant drawings by De Clerck only rarely appear on the market.
