A Sculpture Group in the Garden of Honselaarsdijk Castle, Jan de Bisschop, 1648 - 1671
A large number of landscape drawings by De Bisschop have been preserved, almost all of which are in a small format. Many of these drawings were made during excursions in the surroundings of The Hague. Honselaarsdijk Castle was located near Naaldwijk, southwest of The Hague. Using powerful contrasts of light and shade, the draughtsman effectively conveyed the play of sunlight on the trees and the sculpture group.
