Catalogue Note

Typical of Raimondi's style in the use of close crosshatching executed in pen and ink, this drawing probably dates from early in the artist’s career, during his apprenticeship with Francesco Francia in Bologna.  

For comparable drawings by Raimondi see K. Oberhuber, ‘Marcantonio Raimondi; gli inizi a Bologna ed il primo periodo romano,’ in Bologna e L'umanesimo 1490-1510, Bologna 1988, pp 51-88.  The majority of the drawings published in this article come from the collection of Captain Carlo Prayer, active in Milan in the second part of the 19th Century.
