Catalogue Note

The scale and composition of this drawing suggest that it might be a design for a tapestry. Although the composition has a certain baroque quality, overall there are close morphological and stylistic similarities with drawings from the school of Fontainebleau. The closest similarities, particularly in the face of Andromeda and the treatment of the figures in the background, would seem to be with the works of Henri Lerambert. He worked at Fontainebleau from 1570 and was named peintre pour les tapissiers du Roi in 1600. Several of his drawings are in the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris (see Jean Adhémar, Le Dessin français au XVIe siècle, Lausanne 1954, p. 89) and another was sold New York, Christie's, 30 January 1997, lot 108.
