Horsemen fighting outside a walled city

Second half of the XVI century. Wash, White lead, Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink on tinted paper.
Not on display

The identification of the bearded man bottom left, perhaps a priest or an Old Testament prophet, seems to hold the key to identification of the subject of this interesting drawing. The artist shows knowledge of the style of the Veronese Bernardino India (1528-1590), though the handling is probably not sufficiently accomplished for this drawing to be by him.
