Nude Putti Making Music and Dancing

Early XVII century. Wash, Pencil, Chalk ground, Grey-brown ink on yellow paper.
Not on display

The gaiety and liveliness of the figures, the pictorial choice of media and the drawing´s lightness of touch suggest the work of Cesare Pollini, a little-known Umbrian painter and draftsman. Comparison with drawings unquestionably by the master, supports this idea. An alternative attibution to Cesare Nebbia cannot however be ruled out.
