Standing Angel

1630. Grey-brown wash, Pencil on yellow laid paper.
Not on display

Sánchez Cantón thought the inscription on the banner was by the artist himself and added that this may have been the design for an ex-libris or a frontispiece. The Museo del Prado’s 1857 and 1879 inventories refer to it as “A Cupid.” Wethey dates it from around 1635-1638, during the artist’s period in Seville, and does not believe the inscriptions are by the artist.Veliz dates it in 1630.
