Jan II Baptist Kobell, called „Utrecht Kobell“
1778 Delshaven / Rotterdam – Amsterdam 1814

Young artist offering his drawings, which are hanging over a wooden rack, for sale.

Black chalk drawing, heightened with white chalk, on brownish coloured handmade paper, at lower left inscribed by someone else „Kobell f“, signed „Kobell – fe.“ at lower right. Ca. 23,5:27,5 cm.

Paper a little bit stained.

Pure genre motifs, like this one, by the „Utrecht Kobell“ are quite rare. Maybe this genre picture points out his own poor economic situation at the beginning of his career as an artist.
