Hubert Francois Gravelot 1699-1733. Pen ink and brown wash drawing on laid paper. Minerva.
5 x 7 cms. Some soft diagonal creasing, laid onto mount. To no real detriment in my opinion.
The highly influential French rococo draughtsman and engraver, Gravelot was famous for his book illustrations. This intimately scaled drawing may relate to an as yet unidentified frontispiece.
