Groom Leading a Pair of Horses to a Water Trough

Late XVI - Primera mitad del siglo XVII century. Wash, Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink on dark yellow paper Not on display

Althoug this study brings to mind certain drawings by the Milanese painter Camillo Procaccini (ca. 1555-1629), the traditional attribution to the Florentine draftsman and printmaker Antonio Tempesta is surely correct: compare the simplifications to the anatomy of the horses, especially their heads, with those found in Tempesta´s drawing of a Lion Hunt at Christ Church, Oxford. Besides his numerous representations of battle scenes, Tempesta specialized in compositions of animal subjects and hunting-scenes.
