Beschreibung
Follower of Hieronymus Bosch (ca. 1450-1516) - Two monstrous drinking brothers
Federzeichnung - Nicht signiert

Two monstrous-looking drinking brothers, one wearing a basket on his head as a hat, and a collar looking to be made by sausages. Both men with strange animal legs. The scene can be interpreted as a moralising or satirical comment on drunkenness.

These characters are inspired by the fantastical inventions by Hieronymus Bosh (Ca. 1450-1516) who enjoyed great popularity during most of the sixteenth century and many artists such as Pieter Huys Jan Mandijn, and most famously Pieter Bruegel the Elder found a lucrative market in the continuation of this popular typology

The drawing seems to be from the same source/hand as one sold in Brussels lately (see last image added for reference only)

Pen and brown ink on laid paper.

12,10x9,50 cm

General good condition, faded damp stain top right corner.
