Philips Wouwerman, Saddle Horse at Oats Trough


Printroom of the Royal Museums Berlin

with  both  their  collection  (Lugt 1606)  +  disposal  stamp  verso .

From Winkler’s 11-sheet set after drawings/etchings of Netherlandish masters ( “These sheets are treated very brilliantly”, Nagler). Here then, quite intimate, after the sought after Wouwerman who “influenced all of the later horse painting … exceedingly highly” (Bernt). As Nagler attests Winkler himself “drew horses and battle pieces masterly with the pen”. The great Rossmässler in Tharandt etched after those, perhaps after the Studies for Horse Draughtsmen published posthumously in 1810. – On buff paper untrimmed on two sides with margins 2-8 cm wide.
