= Remarkable drawing. A very similar drawing by almost certainly the same artist was part of the collection of Bernard Houthakker. This drawing was formerly associated with the works of Polidoro da Caravaggio but according to Fuhring is likely from Northern Italy, from the third quarter of the sixteenth century and designed for a feast at a court or for theatre purposes. Cf. Fuhring, Design into Art, 515.
