51. [Flemish school]
After Philip Fruytiers
Drawing, pen and brown ink, with grey wash, 27,3 x 19 cm, laid paper, unsigned (sm. tear at upper right).
Under passe-partout and wooden frame. Not studied outside frame.
Drawing of the presentation of Mary to God and the Holy Spirit by Anna and Joseph. On a banderole the words "Nativitas Tua Virgo MAR Gaudium Universo Mundo" can be read. The drawing is based on a print by Fruytiers with the same subject and diverts from the printed version in various details such as the singular God, the omission of the angels and the halos.
