Description (Brief)
On the unsigned sheet Gerome Ferris sketched a woman from a work by French artist Jean-Antoine Watteau (1684-1721) in pencil and noted: “A. Watteau Cap etc. about 1725.” However, it is not known what use Ferris might have made of the information, nor the ax handle and the claw hammer also on the sheet.
