Two antique prints circa 17th century, matted together, one featuring profiles of a man's head (6 1/2" by 9 1/2"), the other a study of a bare foot and a foot in a sandal (6 1/2" by 4 1/2"), the head profiles, originally drawn by Annibale Carracci (1560-1609) for his "Livre de Portraiture", subsequently transferred into engravings, likely by Jan Van Haelbeck (fl. 1600-1630) and published in Paris in 1667 by Francois de Poilly. Carracci's name is at lower left, and de Poilly at lower right. The engraving of the foot shows no name, but is also very likely by Carracci, as he made very similar studies of feet. Both prints are heavily foxed and browned, as befits their antique status. They are taped to the mat at edges; this tape could likely be removed. Shipped unframed.
