Provenance

Sale, Amsterdam, Sotheby's, 2 November 1987, lot 100 (as Attributed to Gerrit Battem)

Catalogue Note

Battem's splendid gouaches are very familiar, but monochrome drawings such as this are virtually unknown. The handling of details and the overall approach to the composition seen here are, however, absolutely comparable with the artist's gouaches. The technique is also the same as in a View of a town, with Church and castle buildings above a river, which was sold New York, Sotheby's, 26 January 2011, lot 619.
