Description

Although it has not been possible to connect this drawing with a known work by Lanfranco, it is comparable in graphic style to other drawings by the artist.  The handling of chalk, applied rather energetically in the present study, is comparable to a drawing of the Madonna and Child by Lanfranco in the Uffizi, Florence.1
