Two putti fighting

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

According to the opinion of Turner, the drawing is not by a Genoese hand, but seems closer in style to the work of Bolognese Samacchini: compare Angels and Putti amongst Clouds, where the morphology of the figures is similar, as are the crisply delinated outlines.
