Anthony Schoonjans was also an illustrator (drawings)
Not only was Antoon Schoonjans a painter, but he also made several drawings. Some of his drawings were rough drafts in preparation oh his paintings. Others were more elaborated, worth the master. Whenever a drawing is signed, then the intent was to sell it: There appeared to be a market for such drawings, as not everyone could afford a painting.
Some of his drawings were reproduced by other artist as copper etches. The question remains whether this was a saleable product or an advertisement tool for wealthier people.
Some paintings of drawings or pictures are also known. Which came first remains an open question.
