Summary: 

The present sheet, according to the scholar Egbert Haverkamp-Begemann, is by Pieter de Jode I, a Flemish Baroque draughtsman and engraver who spent nearly a decade in Rome beginning in 1590. Haverkamp-Begemann suggests this fine drawing was probably made for an illustrated book. It was common for De Jode to work in pen and ink and then for the drawing to be traced and printed.
