- Trifle foxed; a few scratches to the surface (mainly) near corners; remargined.
= Provenance: Unicorno collection. With an unidentified collector's mark and a modern attribution in pencil on verso. "De niet gesigneerde tekening is op stilistische gronden aan Castiglione toe te schrijven. Zo treffen we eenzelfde wijze van arceren, met snelle, krachtige, grote halen, op andere tekeningen van hem aan. Ook de donkere, krasserige vlakken die schaduwpartijen moeten aanduiden, keren op composities van Castiglione terug. Tenslotte is er verwantschap tussen de gezichten van de sater en beide nimfen met die op een paar andere bladen van de kunstenaar." (C. Dumas, Grenzeloos goed. Tekeningen uit de Unicorno collectie, The Hague 2001). SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE C.
