Comment

This drawing is attributed to Conrad Gilbert because of its color combination of red, black, and yellow and the strong resemblance between the floral design and that used on some of Conrad Gilbert’s known Taufscheine, such as PAG1998.171. In addition to Taufscheine, Gilbert is known to have made about six small drawings, some with text. These typically measure about 12 x 6 centimeters. This piece is 11.5 x 5 cm, so well within this range
