This large drawing, likely destined to the execution f an etching, reminds, at least with the head, of that of Vieillard in the Musée des Beaux Arts in Rouen.
The same reverse sanguine (similar format) is located at the Museum Paul Dupuy in Toulouse at the Cabinet of drawings: INV: 004-7-1.
A picture comparable to the drawing that was sold on October 30, 1998 (see source Artnet and photography of this picture in my ad).
A forerunner of neoclassicism in France, Joseph Marie Vien or an artist of his circle and of the 18th century, addresses here the study from the live model: realism.
The work could be dated to Rome around the middle of the 18th century.
Folds, tears, small gaps on the sides for this unique drawing, to be restored.
Old restorations made with English bond paper, on the back of the drawing.
Other photographs upon request via e-mail: email@example.com
Please note that I only sell the drawing. No frame.
Drawing with traces age at the four corners and sides.
Format: 54.4 x 45.4 cm. The size is variable according to the place where I measure.
Laid watermarked paper with a bunch of typical grapes of the 18th century and a name and a date to decipher.
Photographs with and without flash. Photographs with flash are close to the actual colour of the drawing in sanguine.
A short anecdote: J M Vien is the only artist to be in the Hall of Fame.
