Not on view

This is a preparatory drawing for one of Cornelis Schut's most ambitious etchings (Hollstein 100). The outlines have been incised for transfer. The drawing, which betrays the collaboration of two hands, was possibly first sketched in black chalk by Schut and later carefully worked over by an assistant, perhaps Rombout Eynhoudts, who is known to have worked as an assistant for the artist. The figure of the boy with a dog at lower right in the drawing is clearly by Schut himself.
