Pen and brown ink (recto) and red chalk (verso);

bears attribution in pencil, verso: Vivant Dominique Denon

402 by 305 mm; 15⅞ by 12 in.

Hinge mounted to a modern decorative mount. The edges are currently covered by the existing mount and there are some old mount lines to the four extremities of the sheet. There is an old repair to the figure in the lower left of the sheet, where the iron gall ink has previously caused a loss to the sheet. There is also some show through, where the drawings to the verso are also faintly visible to the recto. The work remains in predominantly good condition, with the combination of media fresh and vibrant. Sold in a modern giltwood frame.
