Catalogue Note

This drawing is page no.2 from the Parchment Notebook, 1975, previously known as Notebook 1. This notebook was "originally bound in a parchment cover bearing the dedication 'MARY' and a listing of Renaissance artists, some with dates. There is no record of the number of pages; those drawn were signed in 1984 and the notebook taken apart in 1985."
(see Parchment Notebook, Lund Humphries, Volume 4, p.312).
