Pen and brown ink
Inscription: Recto, dated in brown ink at l.l. and above border line at u.r.
Provenance: William Schab, New York; Rudolf L. Baumfeld, Los Angeles
Scope and Content:
Formerly attributed to Ercole Bazicaluva (b. ca. 1610-active ca. 1661, Italian), this drawing was recently given to Cantagallina,
who may have been originally excluded from consideration because the 1655 date on the drawing places it after that traditionally
given for Cantagallina's death, 1635. Based on the evidence of two drawings, dated 1654 and 1655, attributed to him in the
Uffizi, Cantagallina is now believed to have died in 1656, a date recorded by one of his original biographers.
