A study for a funerary monument.

The Fitzwilliam had two small paintings attributed to Aspertini, and this monumental and idiosyncratic example of his draughtsmanship complemented them considerably. The drawing is an object of great rarity and importance which, if the identification is correct, was already known and admired by Malvasia in 1678.

Provenance

Charles Rogers (1711-84) Lugt 624, as Leonardo da vinci: Unknown: Philip Pouncey.
