Isaac de Moucheron (1667-1744)
'A Formal Garden'

Pen and ink and wash
Museum no. CAI 368
Bequeathed by Constantine Alexander Ionides

This drawing has recently been attributed to the Dutch artist Isaac de Moucheron, although when Ionides bought it, he believed - somewhat optimistically - that it was by Canaletto. Moucheron was best known in early 18th-century Amsterdam for his painted wall decorations. This may be either a study for a painting or a view of an actual garden.
