STUDY OF A MALE FIGURE HOLDING A CLOTH

Catalogue Note

We have not been able to connect this sheet with any known painting by Guercino, but stylistically it can be dated to the early 1620s.  The intricate fluency of the pen work shows a clear debt to the style of Lodovico Carracci, who was such an inspiration to the Guercino during his early career.
