  • Portrait of Agata Dolci, 1616–86
    Carlo Dolci (Italian, Florentine, 1616–1687)
    Red and black chalk on pale gray paper; 10 3/16 x 7 15/16 in. (25.8 x 20.2 cm)
    Rogers Fund, 1994 (1994.383)

    This sensitively drawn portrait depicts Dolci's youngest daughter Agata. It is composed with great delicacy in red and black chalks, a medium perfected by Florentine seventeenth-century artists and frequently employed in Italy and France in the next century by artists such as François Boucher, who may well have owned this drawing. Dolci described an octagon around the portrait, suggesting that the drawing may have been preparatory for a painting in that shape.
