Style of Bartolome Esteban Murillo - A Young Man Drinking [1700-50]

The genre study shows a youth with vine leaves wrapped around his head clasping a wine bottle and drinking from a glass. This may be a copy of a lost original by Murillo, or an imitation, perhaps by a French painter of the first half of the 18th century.
