Comment
After a drawing by Nicolas Poussin now in the Musée du Louvre, Paris (inv. no. RF 5893 recto). The online catalogue of the Département des Arts graphiques of the Musée du Louvre suggests that a copy after this drawing preserved in the Royal Collection, Windsor (RCIN 911975) might be attributed to Chiari. The original drawing by Poussin is either a first design for his painting now in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (inv. no. 40.89), or a drawing for a now lost version of the same subject. The original plate is preserved in the Calcografia Nazionale, Rome.
