    Here is an ink drawing representing a Roman Scene I suppose done during the XVIIIth Cent...??
    The original drawing is stuck on a harder paper support but not ancient
    This drawing was framed in a very heavy black wood 66x51cm which need some restauration (As per photos).The drawing itself measures 34,5x24,5cm
    The Passe partout Carton was badly deteriorated by humidity and fungus The frame as well...Fortunately the drawing is kept mint.I will find a nice new passe partout to replace.
    No signature but looks having been done by a good Painter or Designer.
    If you have some good infos...Pls let me know..JB 008.JPG 007.JPG 009.JPG 010.JPG 011.JPG 012.JPG 013.JPG 014.JPG 014.JPG 015.JPG 016.JPG

    Yep, this is known generically as an old master drawing. Good idea to try and identify the subject matter or story depicted.

    BTW, in English terminology, we generally refer to Passe-Partout as "the mat" or "matting"

    Just to be clear, I assume they told you this is in the style of Boeyermans, and not a period piece drawn by him correct? Has Drouot held this in their hand to look at it?

    "... sans aucun doute...?" I'm a bit surprised by how emphatic they were. As they've not had it in their hands, could well be a xerox copy for all they know.

    Wow, that's a real surprise. Please do keep us informed. Did you send them the same pictures you posted here - or did you have better pictures to send them? If they accept it for auction, please send us a link. I'd love to read their description. I'm bothered by several things, from quality of work to materials to condition, that makes me quite skeptical it is an original from the 1600's, so I will definitely be interested in following this.
