Drawings and Water Colours / WD368

Assumption of the Virgin

Artist/Maker: Anonymous,

Sepia ink and wash on white laid paper, mounted on laid card, the latter with gold leaf and green and pink wash

393 x 288 mm.
Bequest: George Powell 1882

Originally from the collection of Achille Rijhiner (1731-1788), a Swiss collector who died in Basle. It is very likely the drawing was mounted by Rijhiner who would have added the gold leaf and pink and green wash. The pencil inscription verso probably refers to Pieter Lastman (c.1583-1633) but it is unclear how the drawing relates to him. It is probably a study made after a painting by Lastman
