Catalogue Note

Ostade made chalk figure studies like this not only in preparation for his paintings, but also for his works in other media.  Some studies he used as the basis for figures in prints, others, like this one, for the highly finished watercolors that he produced in some numbers, as finished works, in parallel to his oil paintings.  This man holding a flagon is a study for the central figure in the splendid 1673 watercolor, Peasants playing bowls in front of an Inn, in the Albertina, Vienna (fig. 1).1
