with both their collection (Lugt 1606) & disposal stamps 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 strong paper untrimmed on two sides with margins 2-8 cm wide.
