◦ Surtees, A Catalogue Raisonné, 220 (no. 671).

Scholarly Commentary


Though the sketch representing a girl looking into a mirror is the darkest and most finished drawing on this page, there are a number of interesting vignettes visible. In particular, the profile of Dante Alighieri may refer to Seymour Kirkup's copy of the portrait of the poet in the Bargello.
