Comparable to a drawing of the Coronation of the Virgin, also in brown wash and squared, formerly in the Instituto Jovellanos, Gijón, destroyed in 1936, D. Angulo and A.E. Pérez Sánchez, A Corpus of Spanish Drawings, Madrid School 1600-1650, London, 1977, II, no. 131. The attribution of that drawing is supported by its connection to a painting in the Palace of La Granja. This present sheet, which has been traditionally been attributed to Eugenio Cajes, can also be compared to a drawing of A Prophet or Patriarch in the Uffizi (inv. no. F. 14404) published as Cajes but given by Priscilla Muller to Carducho, D. Angulo and A.E. Pérez Sánchez, op. cit., no. 88 (as Cajes). We are grateful for Dr. Muller's help in preparing this entry.
