Lot description
Katwijk. 1880 /90.
Charcoal drawing.
Signed and dated in lower left. On grayish paper. 20.5 x 24.5 cm (8 x 9.6 in) , size of sheet.
Liebermann presumably signed this drawing at a later point and dated it erroneously. As far as style and motif are concerned, a time of origin around1890 (not 1880) is more likely. [CH].

"Why is it that the swiftest sketch seems to be more complete than the final picture? It is because the sketch is born from imagination and in just a few hours, while the weeks and months of working on the painting kills imagination."
Max Liebermann, in: Max Liebermann, Die Phantasie in der Malerei. Schriften und Reden, Frankfurt/Main 1978, p. 60
