Seated Man Reading, Facing Left, Cornelis Dusart, 1690 - 1700

Seated Man Reading, Facing Left, Cornelis Dusart, 1690 - 1700

black and red chalk, watercolor, h 268mm × w 187mm More details

This man, engrossed in his book, is almost a mirror image of the lad in yellow trousers. The style of drawing and the materials are strikingly similar, and the sheets are almost the same size. It is quite possible that the two drawings once formed a set. The – originally identical – gold framing lines around the drawings show that the works once belonged to the same collection.
