Pluto carrying off Persephone in his chariot

XVI century. Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink on paper. Not on display

This is one of the weakest drawings in the series, the transition between the two foreground figures and the background being especially poor. The drawing on which the Prado copy was based, the whereabouts of which are unknown to the writer, conflates into a single upright composition—the two halves of a celebrated horizontal rendering of the subject, formerly in the Suida Manning collection and now in the Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art, the University of Texas, Austin, generally accepted as by Cambiaso himself. The ex-Suida Manning sheet is thought to date from the 1560s.
