Study of hands and figures, Jacob de Gheyn (II), 1604

Study of hands and figures, Jacob de Gheyn (II), 1604

pen, h 365mm × w 258mm. More details

This study demonstrates Jacques de Gheyn’s drawing process. He recorded his fanciful ideas directly onto paper in pen and ink with seeming effortlessness. The group of figures in the upper right is difficult to decipher. Two old witches seem to be initiating three young witches into diabolic rituals.
