Christophe Karel Henri (Carel) de Nerée tot Babberich,
Portraitstudies, annotated "189, inkt", 11,5 x 25 cm.
Sander Bink ( is working on his phd on De Nerée tot Babberich) has personally seen the drawing and made the following comments.
"The date 1899 is possible. This is suggested by the exercise-like character. What could point at a later date, the Beardsley-like bagpipes left. Beardsley-like job he made only from 1901. On the other hand you find these doodles also in his letters of 1899/1900. "
