Apollo Shooting Arrows at the Children of Niobe

XVIII century. Wash, Pencil, Grey ink on blue paper. Not on display

As J.A. Gere pointed out in 1981 (pencil note on the modern museum mount), the composition is taken from Polidoro´s facade decoration of the Palazzo Milesi, Rome. Judging from the style, the copyist was eighteenth century, which might imply he used an engraving or another drawing after Polidoro as his model, rather than the painted facade itself.
