Venus, Adonis and Cupid

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

The Suidas connected this drawing with Cambiaso´s Venus and Adonis in the Galleria Borghese. Another studio version of the same composition, corresponding closely in outline to the Prado drawing but differing from it through the addition of shading in brush and wash, is in the Fondazione Horne, the Uffizi, Florence (inv. no. 5580).

This and nos. D01716, D01722, D01890 and D01899 from the Album were connected by the Suidas with a painting of Venus Restraining Adonis from the Hunt in the Palazzo Bianco, Genoa.
