Anthonie Waterloo, a productive topographical draftsman, sketched the landscape in and around his native Utrecht. He also travelled west to Brussels and east to northern Germany, and as far as Gdańsk. This drawing recalls the countryside on Holland’s eastern border as well as the wooded area around Brussels. Waterloo made many drawings of these areas, often in black chalk and gray wash heightened with white. His darkly shaded wooded views nicely capture contrasting light in the voids.
Marking: Laid down, backing largely removed; annotated on the backing paper extending below the bottom margin of the drawing in pen and gray ink: 77; and in pencil: A. Waterloo.
