= Cf. Thieme/ Becker XXVII, p.405.
- Tipped onto mount at left margin (glue vaguely visible on recto).
= Attractive view of an unidentified castle. Attribution to C. Pronk on mount and attribution to [C.?] de Haan on verso of drawing.
- Browned along passepartout.
= Drawing by (?) George Ramsay, 9th Earl and 1st Baron Dalhousie, as stated in the provenance ticket on verso (sold at Sotheby's, 1976).
- First panel professionally cleaned; second panel with restorations around central horizontal line; both panels w. minor craquelure.
= Interesting views. A large part of the composition of the first panel is copied after an earlier etching ("de Herreberg Rustenburg") by Jan Vincentszoon van der Vinne from a series, called Gesigten buijten Haarlem (±1700). The second is largely a copy after a view ("Out Roomen", ±1775) by Hendrik Schouten, published by P. Fouquet. This 'copying' method, in which the artist copies the scenery and adds contemporary figures and dogs, is not uncommon for Renard.
= Nice and delicate drawing. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE LXXXVI.
- Laid down and browned.
= Antonia Petronella Elsevier (1730-1799) and Willem van Heemskerck (1723-1782) were married in 1751.

- Yellowed; a few vague pencil annots. in upper part, i.a. "Minds[?] the Cockpit".
