Neoclassical drawing of excellent execution. Study for a painting or probably a burin engraving, preferred technique by this Lombard artist who performed some works of classical and historical subject, of which there are fine examples in the collections of the Russian Hermitage Museum. He spent a long time in Russia, from 1712 until his death.
