Two Studies of a Nude Woman, Jacob de Gheyn (II), c. 1603

Two Studies of a Nude Woman, Jacob de Gheyn (II), c. 1603

pen, h 228mm × w 364mm More details

This is one of the earliest preserved Dutch drawings of a posed nude female model. De Gheyn dazzles the viewer with his direct observation and spontaneous drawing style. Fine hatching suggests not only the shadows, but also reinforces the musculature and curvature of the body. De Gheyn enlivened the drawing in places with accents in pen and ink.
