KAREL DUJARDIN: FORDING A STREAM.
posted: December 9, 2010
The top two drawings are by Karel Dujardin, 1622-1678. I discovered them recently in a new book. Both drawings are of the same model. In the first drawing we find a shepherd who "raises his shirt to keep it dry while fording a stream." Never heard it put that way, but for sure I will be using that line. I just love this drawing so much i had to share. The technique is sublime but I also love the gentle humor in this depiction.
While thinking about these two drawings Isabel Bishop popped into my mind. Here drawings, also wonderful, are the last two here. How similar in so many ways.
