This painting would appear to be the only work by Adriaen van de Velde for which an almost complete set of preparatory drawings survives: a preliminary sketch, which differs in several elements to the painting, particularly in the position and inclusion of animals;1 a more carefully worked-up drawing, representing the final, less-crowded composition;2 and two red chalk studies of the figures.3

Robinson (see Literature) notes that the pose of the girl remains the same in both compositional drawings, suggesting that Van de Velde already had his red chalk drawing of the same among his stock of motifs. The change in the pose of the boy, however, implies that the artist most probably executed the study of this figure between working on the preliminary drawing and the more finished modello.

This lot is sold along with an engraving made after the modello, by Cornelis Ploos van Amstel.
