Pen and ink and red chalk - unsigned

Artist: Circle of Jacob de Wit
Title of artwork: Sketches of nudes
Technique: Ink drawing, Pen drawing
Signature: Not signed
Condition: Overall in good condition
Sold with frame: Yes
Weight: 2 kg

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.

  • Canvas has 5 holes & 2 bulges. Photos did not show this. Description:“a few light marks”
    Damage evidently NOT due to transit. Seller offered return & refund but denied unethical practice
    Disappointed.

    user-bacb304 December 17, 2018

    Response by seller
    I kindly asked the buyer for photographic evidence of the damage but he refused to send any pictures of the damage. He demanded a full refund and to keep the picture. I offered a full refund on the return of the painting but he wants to keep the painting.
  • Consigliato. Venditore corretto, quadro bellissimo.

  • Met het schilderij zijn wij zeer tevreden. Tot onze verbazing is er iets mis gegaan met de informatie via Shipment tracking. Volgens dit systeem stond het schilderij in transit op 12 december 2018.

    The painting arrived unharmed and was well protected. I am glad to have it because Paris is one of my preferred cities to go to (La ville est belle). Thank you!
