190. [Flemish school]

GAREMIJN, Jan Anton (attributed to)

Study of hands.

Ca. 1770-1780

Drawing, black chalk, heightened with white, 39 x 29 cm, unsigned (vague crease along upper edge, tiny brown spots).

Under passe-partout and frame.

Detailed study with one pair of hands resting on a stick, another opened left hand on top. The style and rendering with white heightening recalls drawings by the Bruges painter Jan Garemijn (1712-1799), heavily influenced in style and technique by the drawings by Boucher and Watteau. As director of the Bruges Academy, Garemijn was teacher of drawing after life male model, which might be the context of this fine sheet.
