Catalogue Note

Around 1630, the German-born Knupfer moved to Utrecht, where he studied with Abraham Bloemaert and came under the influence of the Utrecht Caravaggists.  Stylistically, this drawing can be compared with one depicting Diana and her Nymphs, in the Museé Fabre, Montpellier.Jo Saxton dates it to circa 1646.
