This beautifully preserved drawing is an excellent example of Molijn's assured draughsmanship of the 1650s.  His mastery of of black chalk allows him to create the perfect balance of light and shade, creating believable winding landscapes that he enlivens with pockets of daily life, as seen here with his inclusions of figures walking up hill to the right and a horse and cart making its way along the road on the left.

The 1650s were Molijn's most prolific and inventive period, when he produced a large number of very complete atmospheric drawings such as this, representing mountain, river and dune landscapes, winter scenes, peasant markets and other subjects with great liveliness and variety.

For another drawing by Molijn, see lot 97.
