Catalogue Note

This drawing is comparable with a small group of similar chalk drawings of beach and harbour scenes, including two in the British Museum, one in Berlin, one in the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam, one in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York1, two sold Amsterdam, Sotheby's2, and one in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.3  The New York drawing, the Rijksmuseum sheet and three of the others are signed with the initials IP (or JP); as Schapelhouman and Schatborn have pointed out, although Jan Porcellis and his son Julius both signed paintings in this way, there is no good reason to attribute the drawings to the latter, who is totally unknown as a draughtsman.
