Venus and Cupid

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

The drawing has been detached from the Album page and the old numbering lost. Cupid is here represented as older than on the other composition of the subject from the Album group. That he is indeed Cupid is suggested by what appears to be a quiver of arrows in his right hand.
