This study is one of a collection of ten drawings and one oil painting, all of which are thought to be by the same hand. They appear to be working studies for a large history painting, or mural, (circa 1860). Although we have been unable to identify the artist one drawing from the collection offers a clue, “Head and shoulders portrait of a woman Looking up”, is inscribed with the names; J. Marco and Emilia Lotti. All works from this collection are priced and are to be sold individually.
Oil Painting: “Studies for Hands and a Head of a Man” can be viewed in “Paintings” 19th Century.
