GIOVANNI FRANCESCO GRIMALDI, FLUTE PLAYER IN A LANDSCAPE,
PEN AND BROWN INK
This drawing previously attributed to Domenichino can returned to Grimaldi by comparison with two other similar versions, one housed in the British Museum (inv. At-10-58; N. Turner, Roman Baroque Drawings, c. 1620 to c. 1700. Italian drawings in the department of prints and drawings in the British Museum, London, 1999, p. 95, cat. 144 (58) ) with an inscription on the back ‘Grimaldi, & etched by him’ which suggests that the artist later engraved his drawn composition; and the second exhibited by G. Neerman (Il Paesaggio italiano nel Disegno dal XVI al XVIII secolo, Rome and elsewhere, 1974, no. 15) and bearing an inscription ‘Francesco Bolognese fecit’.

Lot Essay

Ce dessin précédemment attribué au Dominiquin a pu être rendu à Giovanni Francesco Grimaldi grâce au rapprochement avec deux autres versions similaires, l’une au British Museum (inv. At-10-58 ; voir N. Turner, Roman Baroque Drawings, c. 1620 to c. 1700. Italian Drawings in the Department of Prints and Drawings in the British Museum, Londres, 1999, p. 95, no. 144 (58)), et comportant une inscription au dos ‘Grimaldi, & etched by him’ qui laisse à penser que l’artiste grava ensuite sa composition dessinée ; et la seconde exposée par G. Neerman (Il Paesaggio italiano nel Disegno dal XVI al XVIII secolo, cat. exp., Rome et autres lieux, Stabilimento A. Staderini, 1974, no. 15) et portant une inscription ‘Francesco Bolognese fecit’.
