Catalogue Note

We are very grateful to Marjolein Leesberg for identifying the subject of this drawing, and for kindly pointing out that it is the study, in reverse, for one of a set of eight prints illustrating episodes from the life of Scipio Africanus, engraved after Tempesta's designs by the unknown monogrammist I.C.G. (who worked in Italy c. 1620), and published by Pieter de Jode the Elder.  An impression of the print is in the Rijksmuseum (inv. RP-P-H-H-383).
