(Raphael (After)). DRAWING OF A WOMAN'S HEAD, AFTER RAPHAEL (II) by Georges Moreau de Tours. Charcoal, 1869. 18 1/4 x 15 inches, 465 x 382 mm. (image); 23 x 17 1/4 inches, 585 x 440 mm. (sheet). Inscribed "Rome 12 Janvier 69." On deckled tan paper watermarked "P M." A few soft creases, else in excellent condition. Georges Moreau de Tours, French, 1848-1901, was a student of Marguerie and of Cabanel. He debuted in the Salon de Paris with genre subjects and some portraits in 1864. He was awarded the Legion d' Honneur in 1892. The attribution of this drawing to Moreau de Tours is based on the fact that this and other drawings clearly by the same hand were contained in a portfolio bearing the name of Moreau de Tours and "Atelier de Cabanel." Moreau de Tours would have been 20 or 21 in 1869, and it was at this time that he studied with Cabanel.
