After Franciscus II DE NEVE
Drawing, pen and grey and brown ink, grey wash, 18,9 x 25,8 cm, laid paper with Dutch watermark (Churchill no. 111), unsigned (edges browned from old frame, small section at upper left corner redrawn by later hand in brown ink, sm. creases).
Stuck by upper corners under passe-partout.
Drawn after an engraving of Franciscus II de Neve (1632 - after 1704). During his long stay in Rome between 1660 and 1669, he specialised in designing prints for the Roman publisher Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. These engravings were mostly bucolic pastoral scenes in Italian landscapes in the tradition of Titian and Poussin. Since the drawing is oriented the same way as the engraving, this sheet is most likely a copy after the print.
