Castiglione was a unique creative figure of the Italian Baroque, inventing the monotype print process as well as the distinctive kind of work on paper seen here, made with a brush and directly combining linseed oil with rather coarsely ground reddish-brown or brown dry pigment. These drawings were intended as finished works and not as preparatory studies.
