Davies, Allart van Everdingen (Drawings)

“ From a travel to Sweden and Norway he then brought home numerous sketches, details of nature from the northern mountainous world, he elaborated in his paintings and numerous graphic sheets. The northern landscape is animated by Dutch figure accessories.

The sketches from Scandinavia

met with an immense interest in Central Europe .

Certainly he has inspired J(acob) van Ruisdael and others with these themes. The less numerous marine drawings just as his sea paintings originate from the early period … In the 18th century these sheets and especially his watercolors were frequently valued ten times as high as a sketch by J. van Ruisdael ”

(Bernt, [Draughtsmen], 2nd ed., 1979, yet of the erroneous opinion that “the large series of studies as illustrations for ‘Reynard the Fox’ … [were] not published as engravings in a book edition”).

Mentioned also the collectors of the sheets along with their marks and possible details just as the imitations and copies extant till today along with 79 comparative illustrations.
