Description: Finished drawing with black framing lines, a rather more adventurous subject than usual for La Rue but clearly in his unmistakeable style and very well done. The recto carries an explanation in French of the subject, just above the upper framing line. A previous collector has questioned if the drawing is after the Comte de Caylus but we have not found any etching by Caylus (who usually worked after other people's designs) of this subject
