These six small drawings are typical examples of the artist’s spirited draughtsmanship, and seem to have been mounted together at some point in the late 18th or early 19th century. Stylistically comparable drawings may be found among the large group of studies by the artist in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.A similar group of four drawings by Allegrini mounted together on one sheet appeared on the art market in Paris in 1974.
