We are grateful to Dr Joachim Jacoby of the Städelsches Kunstinstitut in Frankfurt, who has brought to our attention a very similar drawing, in silverpoint on ivory prepared paper, in that museum's collection (inv. 6977; see J. Lauts, Carpaccio: Paintings and Drawings, London, 1962, no. 2.68).
Please note that all lots are sold framed unless stated otherwise.
