Catalogue Note

This drawing appears to be close to the work of the Urbino born artist, Antonio Viviani, who spent most of his life working not only in his native city, but also in Rome.  The present sheet shows more the influence of Roman mannerism than the debt to the style of Federico Barocci (1528-1612), with whom Viviani trained. The softness in the use of the red chalk is quite typical of the artist's style.
