Catalogue Note

The inscription in the lower margin attributes this drawing to Jan Gossaert, called Mabuse, but the drawing is not in his style.  On the basis of comparison with paintings, it seems closer to the talented Mechelen artist Jan Snellinck the Elder, who frequently depicted scenes of the Crucifixion.  Hardly any drawings attributed to Snellinck are, however, known, so there is no clear picture of his drawing style, although a drawing in Ottawa given to Snellinck on the basis of the signature and date HS (i.e. Hans, or Jan, Snellinck) 1578 could very well be by the same hand as this impressive and accomplished sheet.1
