The Presentation in the Temple

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

The drawing was formerly placed in the collection under the name of Sandro Botticelli (1444/5-1510), following the traditional identification. The style is however surely Marchigian, not Florentine, and from around the middle of the sixteenth century. It is by a good hand, and there may be seen elements from the work of Francesco Menzocchi (1502-1574), Battista Franco (1510-1561) and Federico Barocci (ca. 1535-1612).
