There are several similar drawings by Hopper (1882-1967) of men in Tyrolian costume, like one side of the current drawing, one of which appears to be the same model (Study of a Man in Suit with Hand in Pocket and Sketch of Hands), now in the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (Josephine N. Hopper Bequest).
