Lot Essay

This lively ensemble was executed by Pollino in his vibrant and quirky pen style. The sheet relates to other drawings by the artist, who was mostly active between Rome and Perugia in the footsteps of Federico Barocci and Taddeo Zuccaro, like The Holy Family with Saint Elisabeth and John the Baptist in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (inv. 1973.322), which bears a similar attribution to Tiepolo.
