Catalogue Note

Despite it traditional attribution to Jan Hackaert this drawing can be given with some confidence to Frederik de Moucheron, not only on stylistic grounds but also because, as Keyes pointed out (op. cit.), its composition relates to that of a Moucheron painting in Copenhagen.1

Though lit in the characteristic Dutch Italianate manner, the landscapes in many of Moucheron's drawings seem more strongly influenced by the scenery he saw during his travels in France in 1655-8; this however, is a more purely Italianate composition, which to some extent explains its previous attribution.
