1 See G. Aymonier, Dessins
de maîtres anciens (catalogue), March, 1965. Reproduced, No.7.
2 Daniel Ternois, Jacques Callot, Catalogue complet de son oeuvre
dessiné, Paris, 1961; and L'art de Jacques Callot, Paris,
3 Ternois, Catalogue, Nos. 25-39, 42-45. Here Ternois dates
the drawings 1612-1617. He later narrows the date to 1615-1617.
4 Tempesta's engravings are listed in Bartsch, Le peintre graveur, xvii, 941 -968. It has not been possible to make
a specific identification of the horse after which Callot derived
the present drawing.
5 Ternois was able to trace several of the other drawings in the series back to the Fonds Medici in Florence. The early
provenance of the present drawing is not known, but it is probably
from the same source.
6 See D. Ternois, "A Drawing by Jacques Callot: Studies of Horses
and Cavaliers," Master Drawings, 1, 1963, 45. Ternois here
discusses a drawing in the Schrafl Collection in Zürich, and
mentions that others have appeared. I am grateful to Professor
Walter Vitzthum for calling my attention to this article.
