Title: "A gentleman with his pipe"
Size: 6" x 3.5"
An interesting portrait which came from a collection of drawings of Italian Politicians
c.1860 so it may be possible to identify who it is.
In black chalk on blue paper the drawing has some delicate white heightening suggesting
it is by a professional hand.
The mood of the sitter has been captured brilliantly.
It is unsigned, as is often the case with drawings of this vintage.
Some minor foxing in places and 3 faint folds across the middle.
