Artist
Cano, Alonso (1601-67) / Spanish
Location
The Courtauld, London (Samuel Courtauld Trust)
Medium
traces of black chalk, pen and brown ink, and brown wash, with brown ink framing lines, on laid paper, now laid down on Japanese tissue

Description

Formerly attributed to Pedro de Moya (1610-74). This design is closely related to the title page of Vida y martirio de san Euphrasio by Don Antonio Terrones y Robles (Granada, 1657). The two standing saints are identified as Euphrasius and Potenciana, whilst the coat of arms held by two putti is unknown. The carefully graded applications of the wash, meticulously applied within the contour lines, are typical of Cano’s finished drawings.
