Head-portrait of general Johan Drabbe, in profile towards the right, while reading. Johan Drabbe (1839-1916) was Major General of Genius and school supervisor in Middelburg. Signed and dated within plate: ‘1903 / J Toorop’ and a further mark on the external margin on the bottom right: ‘Atelier Toorop’. On the bottom left margin the number of proofs pulled, 22/25.
