In the 1640s, the artist Roelant Roghman spent two years traveling by foot and drawing manor houses, fortresses, and civic buildings throughout the Netherlands.
Zuijlen Castle Near Utrecht by Dutch artist Roelant Roghman is one of more than 200 drawings the artist made featuring castles, manor houses, and fortresses during a tour around the Netherlands. The artist traveled on foot to capture the present state of the buildings after a long and protracted war with Spain. He used large sheets of paper and combined ink wash and charcoal, capturing the buildings on the spot and then embellishing each with landscape elements.
