53. [Flemish school]
Drawing, black chalk heightened with white, 25,2 x 40,7 cm, blue-grey paper, unsigned (crease at lower right edge, min. foxing hardly affecting the image).
Stuck by upper corners under passe-partout.
Two hunters in the left foreground stroll through a forest landscape with a ruin in the far background. Drawn by a confident hand which recalls the best late 16th-century Flemish or Dutch draughtsmen. The drawing has been attributed on the passe-partout to Roelant Savery (1576-1639). Aside from the hatching on the leaves, there is little stylistic argument to confirm this attribution.
