Standing Female Nude with Raised Arm, Aert de Gelder (attributed to), c. 1660 - c. 1662
Aert de Gelder drew the contour of the posing model with swift, angular pen lines. He had learned to draw this way in Rembrandt’s workshop, where he apprenticed at the beginning of the 1660s. Typical for De Gelder, however, are the passages of shade on the woman’s legs, stomach and breasts. They lend the figure a certain plasticity against the virtually undefined background.
