Vasari, Giorgio (Attributed to)

Group of Figures Conversing

XVI century. Pencil, Grey-brown ink on brown paper Not on display

Florian Härb first suggested the very plausible attribution to Vasari. He pointed out that this is very likely an early work, done when the artist was in the habit of making drawn copies after paintings by others masters. The composition in which the figures appear has not been identified so far, but the elongated figuretypes and distinctive facil features suggest that the work of another Florentine, Rosso Fiorentino (1494-1540), could have been the model. The figures appear to be spectators, possibly in a composition of the Preaching of the Baptist. Another pen drawing of a group of spectators, mostly women and children, and which is probably by the same hand, is preserved in the British Museum, Londres.
