River Landscape with a Fisherman and a Dog

Original drawing in pencil and grey-brown wash, 1680, 263 x 149 mm. Provenance: Dr. Edward Peart (1756/8-1824) (Lugt 891). Delicately drawn in fine black chalk and/or pencil and finished in pale grey-brown wash on laid paper with framing lines, inscribed in pencil below the image "Van der Cabel. 1680." The writing does not match examples of his signature, although he often dated his drawings similarly, and the inscription may have replaced an earlier authentic signature. The drawing is precisely in the style of the artist's landscape etchings (see The Illustrated Bartsch, Vol. 5) though not directly related to any of them. The scene is certainly Italy, which was Van der Cabel's usual subject. He was the pupil of Jan van Goyen, lived in Rome for a considerable time and later resided and died in Lyon.
