French School 19th Century, A Muskeeter, original pencil drawing

About the Item

French school 19th Century A Muskeeter Pencil on paper 26.5 x 17 cm Bears a signature "F. Roybet" in the lower right In quite good condition, bears some visible foxings, In an old mount (some damages) (not framed) Even if the style, execution and of course subject are those of Ferdinand Roybet, it's still difficult to be sure of the attribution. The presence of a signature or maybe just an annotation tends to reinforce the doubts on the opinion of the experts even if this drawing has been traditionally assigned to the famous artist by family tradition of former owners. All reasons why it has to be presented as 19th century french school.
