VISSCHER, Lambert (after). After Pietro da Cortona
Drawing, red pencil with grey wash and graphite pencil grid lines, 39,5 x 22,8 cm, thick paper, unsigned (paper sl. soiled, old glue marks on verso).
This intriguing sheet, which depicts Antiochus on his sick- or deathbed dying from the love for his stepmother Stratonice. Based on a print by Lambert Visscher, after a fresco by da Cortona. Most likely a cartoon drawing for a larger wall painting under a round arch. This is not only indicated by the particular shape, but also by the squaring grid in stylus or pencil.
