Studies of a Reclining Male Nude

Second half of the XVI century. Grey-brown wash, Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink on yellow paper.
Not on display

On Brun´s (?) mount, with his attribution: LE JOSEPIN [i. e., the Cavaliere d´Arpino (1568-1640), who was sometimes referred to as Il Giuseppino]. The style is certainly recalls that of Cherubino Alberti (1553-1615:) In the study upper left, a wing has been added to the boy´s shoulder to change the figure into an angel.
