George bought this drawing as a work by the Dutch artist Adrian van der Werff, whose name is inscribed in the bottom right corner, but the artist has not been identified. The drawing was probably made in preparation for a print of Charles II. It is an offset (made by pressing damp paper against another chalk drawing) that has been worked up in red chalk in the area of the face.

Purchased in 1805
