A Red Bergamot in a Landscape, Aert Schouman, 1753

aquarel en gouache, over een zeer lichte schets in potlood, dunne kaderlijn in potlood, h 433mm × w 279mm. More details

Paints were not made industrially during the 18th century. Artists mixed their own colours by hand, using personal, sometimes secret formulas. The bright red water- and bodycolour that Aert Schouman applied here with his precise, confident brush is astonishingly intense. It is the most striking of all his colours, which were widely admired in his own time.
