DESCRIPTION:  Giuseppe Passeri studied with his uncle, the painter and biographer Giovanni Battista Passeri, before entering the studio of Carlo Maratta. He became one of Maratta’s favorite students, and worked with him on a number of significant projects, as well as completing some of his unfinished works. Unlike most of Maratta’s followers, however, his style was more independent and less indebted to the master. Passeri’s first known dated works were paintings commissioned for the Palazzo Barberini in Rome in 1678. He was to work in Rome for almost his entire career, and nearly all of his most significant paintings are to be found in the city. Elected to the Accademia di San Luca in 1693, he received numerous commissions for religious pictures, such as a Baptism of Constantine painted for the Albani chapel in the church of San Sebastiano fuori le Mura. He also painted elaborate ceiling frescoes for the presbytery of the Duomo at Viterbo, destroyed during the Second World War, and received commissions for mural projects to decorate the palaces and villas of a number of Roman families. In addition to his large-scale work, Passeri also painted several cabinet pictures, and was active as a portrait painter. A large collection of drawings by the artist, numbering over 1,100 sheets, is in the collection of the Museum Kunst Palast in Düsseldorf, while other significant groups are in the Royal Collection at Windsor Castle and the Albertina in Vienna.

The present sheet, which does not appear to be related to any known painting by the artist, is a fine example of Passeri’s highly pictorial manner of draughtsmanship, typified by the characteristic use of a combination of red chalk, brown ink and brown wash. Perhaps intended as an autonomous work of art, it is probably a late work by the artist, comparable with such drawings as a study for a portrait of a young woman, datable to c.1710, in the Museum Kunst Palast in Düsseldorf.

This drawing bears an inscription - incorrectly attributing the sheet to Cavaliere d’Arpino - in the hand of the noted 18th century French collector Charles-FranÁois de Calvière, Marquis de Vézénobres (1693-1777). The present sheet may have been among the 459 lots of drawings sold at auction in Paris in May 1779, two years after the collector’s death.

PROVENANCE:  Charles-François de Calvière, Marquis de Vézénobres, Paris and Avignon (on his mount and with his inscription).
Probably his posthumous sale, Paris, Hôtel d’Aligre, 5-20 May 1779, possibly as part of lot 149, as Cavaliere d’Arpino.
