ascribed to
Pieter Bout
1658 – Brussels – 1719

Pleasure on Ice: Ice skaters, horse-drawn sleighs and people in games of curling.

Red chalk drawing, on handmade paper with a watermark: CDG (about 1680), verso inscribed somewhat later "Thomas Wyck". 16/16,3:26,3/26,7 cm.

Provenance: Collection Adolf Gruis, Berlin, not in Lugt. Acquired by Perl im Oktober 1931, verso auction number "457", with the ascription to Thomas Wyck (1616-1677).

Also a red chalk drawing with the same motif was sold by Sotheby's London, auction at December 13, 2001, lot 234, size 15:26 cm, offered as a work of Pieter Bout. We believe that our drawing is a second version of this one.
