The December Old Master Drawings Online sale includes drawings from the Italian, French, Dutch and Flemish schools from the 16th-19th Centuries. The sale is led by an exceptionally well-preserved still-life by the Dutch artist Herman Henstenburgh. The Dutch and Flemish section further includes drawings by artists from Rembrandt’s school, a study showing the Rest on the Flight to Egypt by Anthony van Dyck as well as several sheets by artists from Rubens’ circle from the collection of the late Michael Jaffé (1923-1997).

The Italian section includes several studies by Palma il Giovane and a large pen and ink drawing by Francesco Fontebasso showing The Raising of Lazarus from the collection of the late Professor Eric Stanley (1923-2018) as well as a swift drawing depicting The Virgin and Child by Alessandro Casolani. Among the 19th Century drawings is a freshly preserved watercolour by Gustave Mequillet showing Jean-Louis Ernest Meissonier’s studio. Estimates range from £400-8,000.
