I am offering for auction a delightful 18th century pen and ink with red chalk of nude sketches. On verso are drawings of putti (not visible in this setup as hidden) Circle of Jacob de Wit, 1695-1754. Probably a page out of a workbook as preperation sketches for work on a ceiling of a private house. Superb.

Measurements. The painting measures 20 x 16n cm approx. The frame measures 42 x 40 cm.

Condition. The painting is in good condition. Please view all images for accurate condition. Ready to hang.

Jacob de Wit was born in Amsterdam, and became famous for his door and ceiling paintings. He lived on the Keizersgracht in Amsterdam, and many of the buildings on the Keizersgracht still have door or ceiling paintings done by him. Since many of the families who lived in Amsterdam in those days had country villas, de Wit also painted in houses in the fashionable areas of Haarlem and the Vecht river.

Postage via DPD, UPS or Parcelforce depending on country.

Please note. If you live on an island which is part of Spain or Italy, Sicily or Canary Islands for example, postal prices are higher than mainland Italy or Spain. Please be aware of this and contact me for a postal quote. It costs more to post to an island than mainland. I only charge what I am charged.

Please note. Frames are fragile. I will wrap well but cannot be responsible if a piece of frame comes loose or takes a knock, or if there is glass it gets broken. Please be aware of this before bidding.
