Old watercolor drawing (perhaps charcoal in places as well) with slight use of white gouache, unsigned, the subject a younger man of the sixteenth century or thereabouts. The drawing (15 1/2" by 12") is on grayish heavy paper (the true color is indicated by the first two images---the subsequent ones were taken in different light, suggesting a more tan color). The age of the drawing itself is especially difficult to determine in this instance. I would guess that it could be anywhere from 1960 to the 19th century. The paper to me looks to be not especially old. I purchased this inexpensively framed (frame since lost), and at the time of purchase I even thought the work could be of old master age. The paper is affixed to a flimsy board on the corners only, so I have been able to take a peek behind; no writing is immediately apparent there. Because of the way it is affixed at the corners only, this does not lay perfectly flat (buckling at upper right as shown in image). I offer the drawing on its decorative merits. Ideally it should be carefully removed from the backing, re-matted, and framed.
