With no fewer than twenty drawings, Tintoretto was well represented in the collection of Franz Koenigs. This may well point to a conscious preference on part of the collector. Tintoretto made several studies after antique heads, including the bust represented here, which was given to the City of Venice by Cardinal Domenico Grimani in 1523 and was then believed to represent the Roman emperor Vitellius.
