Catalogue Note

This drawing seems to date, like the writing, from the sixteenth century,1 and it is drawn over stylus outlines.  Although this drawing is a very quick sketch, it is possible to detect some similarities with the graphic style of Lodovico Cardi, called Il Cigoli (1559-1613). 

1. The Latin inscriptions appear to be fragmentary invoices
