This spirited and amusing caricature is very close in execution and style to others by G.B. Tiepolo in his Tomo terzo di caricature, dated by George Knox to the period of 1754-62.  The Tomo Terzo, formerly in the Algarotti-Corniani collection, was dismantled in order to be sold at Christie's on 9 April 1943.  Tiepolo's caricatures must originally have been preserved in three volumes, and in an 1854 catalogue of the Algarotti-Corniani collection, two such volumes are listed, containing 'una copiosa collezione di disegni umoristici del Tiepolo'.1   

The gentleman represented here bears a strong resemblance to another caricature by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo of a seated, hunchbacked man wearing glasses and a cap, holding a book, seen in profile, who George Knox has suggested may represent an ecclesiastic.2
