Giuseppe Bison
Study of a Kneeling Monk or St. Jerome
1805 – 1831
Museum Purchase
This sketch depicts a man in profile, facing toward his right. He wears a turban and an elaborate collar. On the verso is pasted a small print of James Barry's painting "The Distribution of Premiums in the Society of Arts", originally part of a series "The Progress of Human Culture" painted between 1777 and 1784. The print is smaller and more simplified than the official print Barry made after his painting published in 1792, and probably came from a book.
