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.

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.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.
Perfect Thank you
