This beguiling drawing relates to "Raphael and La Fornarina", a subject Ingres painted on several occasions. In the painting, Raphael appears in the studio with his fabled mistress-model “La Fornarina” (the baker’s daughter) sitting on his lap. Ingres, who greatly admired Raphael, seems to have had Raphael’s love interest in mind at the very moment of his own courtship and marriage to Madeleine Chapelle. Madeleine has been identified as the model for this study drawn from life.
