Literature

M. Russell, Visions of the Sea. Hendrick C. Vroom and the Origins of Dutch Marine Painting, Leiden 1983, p. 176, fig. 159;
C. Schuckman and J. de Scheemaker, Hollstein's Dutch & Flemish Etchings, Engravings and Woodcuts 1450-1700, vol. LII, Rotterdam 1998, p. 78, under no. 4 (as probably a copy)

Catalogue Note

The drawing is the study, in reverse, for the representation of Autumn (Fig. 1), from a set of four prints of the seasons, anonymously engraved after Wieringen's designs.  As Schuckman and de Scheemaker pointed out in their entry on the print, the drawing is less sketchy in handling than are many of Wieringen's other drawings, but given that it was made as the design for a print, that would not seem to preclude the attribution.  In other respects - in particular the clarity of the handling, the sense of atmosphere created, and the tonality of the ink - the Haverkamp Begemann drawing does seem consistent with Wieringen's work.  It would appear to be an early work, drawn at a time when the artist was particularly under the spell of his great Haarlem predecessor (and presumably teacher), Hendrick Vroom.
