Antoine Denis Chaudet (Paris 1763 - 1810 Paris): The Death of Adonis, after Giulio Romano
Pencil, gray wash
135 x 214 mm (51/4 x 83/8 in.)
Signed in pen and brown ink lower right: Ant. Den. Chaudet
The present drawing is a compositional study made by Chaudet after the drawing of The Death of Adonis by Giulio Romano (Musée du Louvre). Chaudet probably made this drawing while he was still a student. Our drawing is a typical example of the graphic technique of Chaudet who preferred graphite and gray ink. Other drawings executed in this technique include the sketches from the Louvre’s album, and Aristomenes finds Socrates in the Misery from the musée des Beaux-Arts in Angers (inv. n° MBA 364.40.6).
