VENICE: mid 16th century

Christ as the Man of Sorrows, in a landscape
Inscribed in ink 'M.66'
Pen and ink
6 3/8 x 4 ¾ (162 x I21) D.1042-1900

PROVENANCE Padre Resta; Lord Somers (as shown by the inscription: see Lugt 2981 and Lugt, Supplement, p. 419); Sir J. Reynolds (Lugt 2364)

The name Tiziano is written against no. M.66 in the British Museum MS. that records Resta's comments on the drawings first in his, then in Somers's possession (see Lugt 2981 and Lugt, Supplement, p. 419 for an account of the MS). The attribution can no longer be accepted, though the drawing is of a type often ascribed to Titian in the past.
