Flemish School

17th Century

Study of a Tree

Drawing, Sanguine, 17.6 x 14.5 cm

Provenance: German Private Collection

Price: 500 €


A mighty tree trunk, together with a tangle of roots and branches, forms the sole subject of this drawing. The artist, like some other Dutch and Flemish artists in the 17th century, was fascinated by such natural forms. This tree could have been encountered by the draftsman, unknown to us, on his journey to the Swiss and Tyrolean Alps. It combines the attentive eye of a naturalist with the energy of Baroque art.
The paper bears a watermark that has not yet been identified.
