An accomplished head-and-shoulders drawing of the composer as an older man. 327 x 235 mm. On wove paper. Unsigned.
The unknown artist sensitively captures Verdi in a pensive mood, his head is turned slightly left,
Some small edge tears and pin holes to lower corners; slightly foxed; faint lines at edges where previously framed. In very good condition overall.
A very well-executed drawing, possibly made from life.
Not in Gatti: Verdi nelle Immagini or Weaver: Verdi: A Documentary Study. We have been unable to locate any other image on which the present drawing would appear to have been based.
