Did You Know?

The artist captured this scene in France during a long journey from the Netherlands to Italy.


The Dutch artist Isaac de Moucheron’s view of a rural hillside is inscribed in Dutch “Buyten Orleans” (outside Orleans), indicating that he made the drawing while passing through France on a journey from the Netherlands to Italy. De Moucheron likely captured this scene with graphite and ink while on-site and then finished it later with gray, brown, and pink washes. Many Dutch artists took Italian sojourns to sketch the landscape, antique sculpture, and architecture.
