GEROLAMO INDUNO (Milan 1827 - 1890) TWO STANDING FIGURES: A YOUNG WOMAN CARRYING A CUP AND AN OLD MAN
Black chalk, heightened with white, on light brown paper. 218 x 145 mm.
The young woman on the left of our drawing is very similar to the woman carrying a cup in the celebrated painting 'Il racconto del ferito', 1866, and the similarities are perhaps more evident in the large preparatory drawing for that painting. See F. Mazzocca, ‘Una raccolta di disegni di Gerolamo Induno, episodi di vita risorgimentale’, exhibition catalogue, Milan, 1984. Much probably also the drawing presented here is to be dated to the sixties'.
