Catalogue Note

Part of the series of drawings from the volume 'Sole Figure Vestite'.  A large number of these are in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. None can be associated with any specific painting, but Knox suggested that they were certainly drawn no later that the W├╝rzburg period (1751-3), and possibly earlier.
