Lot 350: Follower of Hendrick Golzius 1558 - 1617 and Jacob Matham 1571 - 1631 'The Fates Cutting the Thread of Life'. An exceptional watercolour, gouache and stipple work on vellum, laid to card. Linked to the 1587 engraving by Jacob Matham, after the drawing by his father in law, Hendrick Golzius. The Dutch master painter and engraver Hendrick Golzius published several versions of the Fates. This version is near identical to the print by Matham, and presents the Fates as elegant young nudes, positioned in a rocky landscape and sets Atropos's scissors at the centre of the circular composition. In the round, and set in a period baroque carved frame, with spun glass. Verso, an earlier label indicating this work was attributed to the great pastellist and miniaturist Rosalba Carriera 1673 - 1757. In pencil on the card backing to the vellum, further inscription: "Rosalba, 1700. Imported by C.T. James 1856". Private Collection. Please also see lot 349 by the same hand.
