Small (3" by 3") unsigned ink drawing on blue paper (6 3/4" by 5 3/4" as framed), the subject a female figure leaning, an old German script label strip on backing giving the title as "Blumenmarkt in Amsterdam", "Olstudie von Hans Herrmann" ("oil study by Hans Herrmann"----the discrepancy perhaps explained by the label being originally intended for another work by this artist). This is likely a preparatory study by HANS HERRMANN (1858-1942), a German artist who studied for a time with Max LIebermann and Walter Leistikow and their group "The XI". Herrmann worked primarily in oil and watercolor, his favorite subject the flower markets, general markets, and canals of his adopted city Amsterdam. Fine oil works have achieved $20,000 at auction. This little drawing is obviously a sketch by the artist while in the process of trying to work out, perhaps, a figure to be included in a more finished work. The old label from Nurnberg likely pre-dates World War II. I do not know the origin of the curving areas at upper right, whether they are later damage or some stray marks from a brush. The study though simple is obviously by a skilled hand, and a complete work of art in and of itself. See the net to see images of some of Herrmann's finished flower market paintings. Allow for some reflections in images.
