Catalogue Note

Almost all Lingelbach's drawings, which are not particularly numerous, depict the Mediterranean harbour scenes familiar from his painted works.  The majority of these drawings are, however, rather smaller in format than the present sheet (circa 150 by 240 mm).  A number of these smaller drawings served as preparatory studies for a series of twelve etchings made by Johnannes Groensveld, and published under the title Aliqi portus (Holl. 30-41), and at least one autograph drawing on a larger scale, formerly in the Klaver collection, is also related in composition to this series of prints.It would, however, appear that the present drawing, like the other larger sheets in Hamburg (Kunsthalle, inv. 22116 and 22117) and Paris (Louvre, inv. 22.732), was made as an independent work.
