ENQUIRE

The town of Neuenhaus, in the county (Grafschaft) of Bentheim in Lower Saxony, is on the modern-day border between Germany and Holland. Brondgeest seems to have spent some time there, as a number of drawings of sites in the vicinity have survived.

Among stylistically comparable drawings by Brondgeest is a View of a Country House, formerly in the collection of Saam Nijstad and Lily Nijstad-Einhorn in The Hague and sold at auction in Amsterdam in 2004. Also similar is a large drawing of Castle Doorwerth, near Arnhem, once in the collection of Hans van Leeuwen and sold at auction in 1999.

Provenance:
Iohan Quirijn van Regteren Altena, Amsterdam (his posthumous sale stamp [Lugt 4617] stamped on the verso)
Thence by descent.
