A drawing of four soldiers,
facing front, similarly clad in brownish-grey coats, cuffs and woollen
stockings, but with different hats. They all bear their guns on their
shoulders. Inscribed, verso: A. Van Everding / 10 Novr 1777. The old
attribution to Allart van Everdingen was based on the inscription on the
verso, however the soldiers' equipment indicates that the drawing was
executed after his death in 1675, and probably dates from the early
years of the eighteenth century.
