About the Work

This likeness belongs to the series of “character heads” executed as studies or as objects for collection by art lovers. In them, Piazzetta captured children and adults of different ages in natural poses. The drawing is one of an extensive group of similar works of the 1740s now in the collection of the Gallerie dell’Accademia in Venice.
