Signed at lower left, in brown ink, "Roelant Roghman".

Charles Fairfax Murray (1849-1919), London and Florence; from whom purchased through Galerie Alexandre Imbert, Rome, in 1909 by Pierpont Morgan (1837-1913), New York (no mark; see Lugt 1509); his son, J. P. Morgan, Jr. (1867-1943), New York.
Notes: 

Watermark: none visible through lining.
The drawing is possibly to be associated with the print series "Views of Italy" ("Illustrated Bartsch", 1979, V, nos. 25-32). No. 27 in this series, for example, also shows deer at the foot of a rocky cliff in the middle ground.

Murray, Charles Fairfax, 1849-1919, former owner.
Morgan, J. Pierpont (John Pierpont), 1837-1913, former owner.
