As with most drawings from rather rare artists authorship is not easy to confirm, especially because there is less work auctioned by this artist. (One mythological drawing found and several portrait paintings in RDK). His portrait was made by Tako Hajo Jelgersma in 1737)
The nature of the work would fit a youth work during his London period, perhaps strengthened by the London provenance of the collection stamp.
