Head of a Satyr after Rubens, c. 1714

Drawing auctioned at Sotheby’s in 2009

As the Sotheby’s website helpfully indicates this drawing by Watteau derives from Rubens’ great painting The Drunken Hercules. Watteau would never have seen this painting and probably made his copy of the satyr’s head from an album of character heads produced by Rubens’ workshop. This album was available to Watteau’s circle in France but has since been lost. Watteau made many superb drawings from the works of Rubens, one of his greatest influences.

This evening as light rain began to fall we watched a rainbow not unlike this one fade into the dusk.
