D. Metius
ACTIVE CIRCA 1640
FARM BUILDINGS BY TREES

Catalogue Note

This interesting, incomplete drawing is certainly by the same hand as another landscape, signed DMetius and dated 1641, in Joannes Montanus' Album Amicorum in the Koninklijke Bibliotheek, The Hague, and another, unsigned, in the Teyler Museum, Haarlem.1  Whether the artist is identical to, or a relation of, the portrait painter Dirck Metius (1610/15-1665), who was active in Amsterdam and Alkmaar, remains unknown.

1.  Inv. no. 76 H 6, fol. 86 recto, and inv. no. O 39b, respectively.  See M. Plomp, Dutch Drawings in the Teyler Museum. Vol. II, Artists Born Between 1575 and 1630, Haarlem/Ghent/Doornspijk 1997, p. 237, no. 255, & p. 483, Ill. 4
