Cornelis van der Schalcke was a dutch painter and draughtsman born in St. Bravo in Haarlem. His rare drawings recall the subjects of his paintings; long flowing Haarlem landscapes with dunes, farmhouses and herds which he always drew with black chalk and brown ink. His drawing are often confused with those of Jan van Goyen, Peter Molyn and even Albert Cuyp under whose names a large part of his oeuvre are still attributed. J.Q. van Regteren Altena has reconstructed a large part of the work of this interesting draughtsman and published them in "Oud Holland XLIII.56".

The present drawing derives from an entire sketchbook of landscape drawings by the artist which must have been executed by Cornelis van der Schalcke on one of his trips in the surroundings of Haarlem. All drawings have a partial black ink border and an old inventory or perhaps page numbering on the verso. A collection of these drawings were sold in Amsterdam, at Sotheby's in 1978, coming from the collection of E. Hammond. All are the same format and are drawn in the same style and technique. The drawing can be compared to other works on paper by the artist, such as the drawing formerly in the F.C. Butôt Collection and those published by Walter Bernt.
