The author of this Bolognese school is an artist under the influence of the Carracci but an influence passed through the prism of Guido Reni and Simone Cantarini. This drawing fits well enough with the various drawings by Flaminio Torre. He used mainly red chalk as a medium but also worked with black chalk. This charming figure-study , although unrelated to any surviving painting by the
artist is typical of Torre’s draughtsmanship. Following a period in the studio of Guido Reni and Giacomo Cavedone, Flaminio Torre (or Torri, and also known as Flaminio deli Ancinelli) completed his apprenticeship with Simone Cantarini. Torre’s first known dated work is an etching of 1639 in which, as in such early painting as the Adoration of the Magi in San Giuseppe in Bologna, the influence of his master is really evident. With the death of Cantarini in 1648, Torre inherited his studio. He settled in Modena by 1658, where he was employed at the Ducal court of Alfonso I d’Este as curator of the Galleria d’Estense. He lived in Modena for the remainder of his life, although the absence of any dated paintings from this period suggests that he painted very little after leaving Bologna.
