Attributed to Rosalba Carriera
Portrait Study of a Woman
Black chalk on paper.
8 11/16 x 6 5/16 inches (221 x 161 mm)
Gift of Janos Scholz.
Watermark: Letters "DA" over decoration.
Barozzi, Venice; Janos Scholz, New York (no mark; see Lugt S. 2933b).
Although Janos Scholz believed this to be by Rosalba Carriera, that attribution has not otherwise been accepted, for the drawing has nothing in common with the small number of surviving studies by her; it appears to be a copy, not necessarily after Rosalba.
Barozzi, former owner.
Scholz, János, former owner.
