Portrait of Voltaire, pencil sketch, mid 18th century
Portrait of Vlotaire, pencil sketch, shown seated wearing a jacket, his long hair tied behind. Unsigned, mid 18th century
The paper is appropriate for the mid-18th century, however bears no watermark. No comparable work of Voltaire could be fond to suggest this is a copy from an engraving or painting, and this may well be an original from life.....
