Lot Essay


The extensive parallel hatching in this sheet is characteristic of Allegrini’s draughtsmanship, and can be compared to several drawings in the Scottish National Galleries, Edinburgh, which has a large holding of Allegrini drawings by the artist (K. Andrews, Catalogue of Italian Drawings, Cambridge, 1968, pp. 3-8, figs. 12-84).
