Catalogue Note

Although this drawing does on balance seem to be German in origin, the form of the inscription and the general compositional type are also reminiscent of some of the bird drawings from the Cassiano dal Pozzo collection (see Henrietta McBurney, 'Cassiano dal Pozzo's drawings of Birds', in Il Museuo Cartaceo di Cassiano dal Pozzo. Cassiano naturalista, Quaderni Puteani 1, Turin 1989, pp. 37-47; see also lots 95-96). 

Sold in a fine antique tortoiseshell frame.
