Catalogue Note

Drawings by this distinctive hand were usually attributed to Karel van Mander III or Jan Philipsz. van Bouckhorst, until Marijn Schapelhouman recognised the connection between drawings from this group in the Rijksmuseum and stained glass windows in Oudshorn, designed by Bouckhorst's pupil, Pieter Jansz.  From this starting point, Schapelhouman built up a corpus of drawings by the artist. His drawings are rather rare, and the studies of coats of arms and heads on the verso, together with the extensive inscriptions, are unique within his work.  It has not been possible to transcribe or interpret these inscriptions fully, but the titled sketch in the middle of the verso and the chalk inscriptions to the left seem to refer to a family by the name of Van der Linden, who may have been patrons, relatives or friends of the artist.
