This sketch is pretty certainly by one of the early seventeenth-century Milanese artist, G. B. Crespi (Il Cerano), G. G. Procaccini or, less probably Camillo Procaccini or Morazzone, but they are very difficult to distinguish and it would be impossible to be certain unless one stumbled on the picture for which this presumably is the fragment of the bozzetto. The bishop is pretty certainly San Carlo Borromeo and it might possibly be a sketch for part of one of the large pictures in the Duomo at Milan of his life and miracles. Two by Cerano are illustrated in 'Prussian Jahrbuch' XLVI (1925).
