= In 1986 Sotheby's Amsterdam sold a similar, but smaller, drawing with almost exactly the same composition. Part of a series of drawings made by Hendrik de Leth on a voyage along the Rhine in 1763. Later a series of prints was published by F.W. Grebe after the drawings by De Leth and engraved by the same. The print differs from the original smaller Sotheby's drawing; the print has added figures and foliage in the foreground, which are present in our larger drawing. According to the Rijksmuseum the prints were after drawings by Cornelis Ploos van Amstel, but he only created the title print of the series. From the collection of "W. Hendriks" with his annotation (and incorrect attribution to Jan Asselijn) on verso.
