This is the humble beginning
of what I hope
will eventually
be a large catalog
of great Guercino drawings.

Every exhibit of master Italian drawings
seems to have a few,
but I haven't, yet, been able to find
very many at the library

This one was in the Goldman collection
that was shown at the A.I.C. earlier this year.

If only he could have carried this
dramatic immediacy
into his paintings.
