Catalogue Note

This accomplished chalk study is after the figure of Psyche in Jacob Matham's 1609 print, Amor and Psyche, after Abraham Bloemaert (Bartsch III, no. 76; Hollstein XI, p. 227, no. 196).  It bears an old attribution on the verso to the genre painter Brekelenkam, and while the image is not consistent with the subjects of that artist's paintings, we know nothing of his drawing style, and there is no particular reason why he should not have made a copy like this after an admired, earlier print.
