Catalogue Note

Though he is most celebrated today for his extraordinary work as an artist of ornithological and zoological subject matters, Schouman was also a prolific documenter of landscape in his native Holland.

The present drawing, which depicts a view of the city of Vianen, fits securely into a corpus of drawings Schouman produced on the same scale and in the same distinctive combination of media, examples of which are today housed in the collection of the Koninklijk Zeeuwsch Genootschap der Wetenschappen, Middelburg.1 Many of these drawings are similarly signed and inscribed to their lower borders, in the same idiosyncratic fashion as the present lot.
