The Dutch Drawings in the Collection of His Majesty the King at Windsor Castle

By Leo van Puyvelde | Go to book overview

THE DRAWINGS
The marks GR and ER VII, are irrelevant to the problem of provenance of the Drawings, for they were stamped upon the majority of the Drawings by the late librarian, Sir John Fortescue, at the beginning of this century
NICOLAAS AARTMAN ( 1713-1760). Rhineland Landscape. No. 6268. White paper; point of the brush in grey. 9 7/8 in. × 15 5/8 in.; 250 mm. × 397 mm. Mark GR.

Signed in the centre at the bottom: ' Aartman fec'.

A river winding through a hilly landscape; several hamlets on wooded knolls; a ferry in the foreground. In the centre a small monument inscribed: '18 E 58'.

Nicolaas Aartman was probably born in Amsterdam, where he lived and died. There are two signed drawings by him in the Cabinet of Prints at Amsterdam and one in the Albertina, Vienna. The two following drawings are both signed and dated.

NICOLAAS AARTMAN ( 1713-1760). Landscape. No. 6611. White paper; point of the brush in grey. 6 5/8 in. × 9 1/4 in.; 168 mm. × 235 mm. Mark GR.

Signed at the bottom right-hand corner in paint: ' Aartman: Fec: 1757'.

A road bending to the right; to the left a pond in which stand cattle and a man.

See preceding Note.

NICOLAAS AARTMAN ( 1713-1760). Landscape. No. 6612. White paper; point of the brush in grey. 6 5/8 in. × 9 1/4 in.; 168 mm. × 235 mm. Mark GR.

Signed at the bottom right-hand corner in paint: ' Aartman: fec: 1757'.

In the centre men and a cart crossing a ford; to the left a road leading to the ford. A hill to the right.

See Note 1.

PIETER VAN ANRAADT (?) (c. 1635-1678). The Departure. Repr. Pl. 103. No. 12842. White paper; pencil. 7 5/16 in. × 9 3/8 in.; 185 mm. × 238 mm. Mark ER VII.

Inscription at the bottom right-hand corner, in ink: 'Rob: Sutton'.

An officer mounted on a horse turned to the right; a groom tightening the girths; to the left another cavalier, drinking, seen from the back; to the right a trumpeter.

This drawing might be a work of Pieter van Anraadt, who was born at Utrecht and worked at Amsterdam and Deventer. Its style should be compared with a painting, 'The Departure of a Commander', No. 363 at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, which had--says the Catalogue of 1936--until 1860 the signature of Pieter van Anraadt. The inscription 'Rob: Sutton' indicates Sir Robert Sutton, whose collection was sold in 1749-1750 (see the MS. Catalogue of Sales of the eighteenth century, MSS. S., Vol. II, in the Library of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London).

DAVID ARTZ ( 1837-1890). A Fisher Girl. No. 12892. White paper; water colours. 17 1/16 in. × 11 3/8 in.; 435 mm. × 288 mm. Mark GR.

Signed at the bottom right-hand corner with the point of the brush: 'Artz'.

A young Dutch fisher girl, with a shrimp basket on her back, is seated on a dune, in the middle of the foreground.

Representative work of David Artz, a pupil of the Amsterdam Academy and a follower of Jozef Israels. His works are clearer, more realistic, and less artistic than those of Israels.

JAN ASSELIJN ( 1610-1652). Outside a Castle. Repr. Pl. 55. No. 6313. White paper; point of the brush in grey; grey wash. 10 3/8 in. × 9 1/16 in.; 265 mm. × 230 mm. Mark GR.

To the right the outer wall of a castle surmounted by a half timbered dwelling; to the left an open arched gateway.

Jan Asselijn was born at Diepen, near Amsterdam. He went early to Rome, where he was one of the well-known group of Dutch and Flemish artists called the 'Schilderbent', who earned their living by painting landscapes. He was known there as 'Krabbetje' (Little Crab), because the fingers of his left hand were crippled. He painted many views of the Campagna Romana. In 1645 he returned to the Low Countries, and in 1651 settled in Amsterdam, where he died soon after.

The greater part of his work consists of scenes in Italy. Houbraken rightly observed that there is something of the influence of Claude Lorrain to be seen in his landscapes, which explains his popularity during the eighteenth century. It should be noticed that his drawings lack something of the solidity of his pictures.

JAN ASSELIJN ( 1610-1652). An Italian House. No. 6314. White paper; point of the brush in grey; grey wash. 10 5/8 in. x 11 3/4 in.; 195 mm. × 300 mm. Mark GR.

A house with an open gallery on the roof and a square tower, beneath which the road runs through an archway.
