Lot Essay

The technique of the present drawing is comparable to Granet's early drawings in the Musée Granet in Aix-en-Provence, B. Ely et al., Granet, Paysage de Provence, Aix-en-Provence, 1988, nos. 3-24, illustrated.
Granet left for Italy in July 1802 where he stayed intermittently for twenty-two years before going back to live in France.
