ENQUIRE

The present sheet is a splendid example of Cecco Bravo’s distinctive manner of drawing, characterized by the use of a combination of red and black chalk and a feathery, seemingly insubstantial depiction of form; an idiosyncratic technique that, in the words of one scholar, ‘challenged the rigor of Florentine disegnoin its fine disregard for contour.’

 

Provenance:
The Earls of Crawford and Balcarres, Balcarres House, Colinsburgh, Fife
Thence by descent to a private collection.
