111. [Italian school]
Drawing, pen and brown ink, grey gouache, 17,1 x 14,4 cm, signed and dated in pen at lower edge "[illegible] Spagnoli fecit" and "19 Julio 1755" (several creases).
Glued on cont. engraving, loose sheet.
A skilful sketch made on a piece of scrap paper showing the interior of a court room or dungeon. Two men are chained to the wall, while a third on the left is standing on a flight of stairs. Perhaps a justice scene. The drawing has been glued on to a fragment of an 18th-century Italian ornament print with cartouches and grotesques.
