Allegory of Commerce

XVIII century. Grey-brown wash, Pencil on yellow laid paper.
Not on display

Set against a classical cityscape with porches, domes and obelisks, a winged female figure flies with ears of wheat in her left hand. In the foreground, on the floor, several children are playing with books and one of them holds a set of scales and a caduceus. It appears to be a vignette for a book illustration.
