About

Late 18th century mixed media portrait of the head of an old man, perhaps the biblical figure Moses. Italian school . Composed of graphite, colored chalk, watercolor and gouache on wove paper. No visible signature, in the style of the Italian artist, Raphael. Mild foxing and what looks to be an old repair in the hand area. Otherwise, considering age, good condition.
