Description: Guardi (Giacomo, 1764-1835), Capriccio with figures among classical ruins, point of the brush and black ink, on grey-blue coloured paper, 82 x 83 mm. (3 1/4 x 3 1/4 in), unframed Provenance: Private Collection, Germany; ⁂ The authorship of the present drawing has been confirmed by Charles Beddington on the basis of a photograph (private communication, August 2013) Traditionally given to Francesco Guardi (1712-1793), the present drawing has since been identified as the work of his son and artistic heir, Giacomo Guardi. Giacomo was greatly influenced by his father, with whom he frequently collaborated. The present drawing, among the very smallest and most intimate known by the artist, is likely to date to around 1780-90, quite early in the artist's career, when his style was still almost indistinguishable from that of his father. For a comparative drawing, probably from the same period, see Capriccio with a Statue of a Warrior and a Ruined Castle on the Shore of the Lagoon (held in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, inv. no. 1975.1.344).
