Catalogue Note

This impressively large sheet is a fine example of the draughtsmanship of the highly influential 17th Century Roman artist, Carlo Maratta. Executed in a characteristic combination of red chalk with some touches of white, this handsome head study is preparatory for the Angel on the left hand side of Maratta's The Appearance of the Virgin to Saint Francis de Sales (fig.1), which was completed in 1691 and is now housed in the collection of the Pinacoteca Civica, Forlì.

We are very grateful to Dario Beccarini who has kindly confirmed the attribution to Maratta on the basis of a digital image.
