Catalogue Note

The style of the figures and in particular the profile of the male nude can be compared with Jacopo Bassano's paintings of the mid-sixteenth century, see for instance The Beheading of the Baptist now in the Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen.1  The use of chalk is also quite comparable with the known drawings by the artist.
