BRAMER, Leonaert
(b. 1596, Delft, d. 1674, Delft)

Scenes from the Life of Christ

Watercolour and gouache, 125 x 110 mm
Private collection

This drawing belongs to a series of 48 drawings, recto and verso, on 24 sheets of vellum bound in an album. This series is the only one by Bramer still in its original binding. From old descriptions and fragments it is clear that several other series of drawings by the artist were bound. Although devoted to coherent themes, the collections were usually broken up so that the drawings could be sold separately.
