Lot Essay

This small preparatory oil study is essentially a drawing for the section of the late Panthéon frieze that includes Saint Loup (Lupus) and Attila at its center and a horse at right. It is more complete in its designation of figures at far right and left than is the large, unfinished cartoon (now in Musée d'Orsay, Paris). A previous title identified the female figure as Radegundus, who is here taking the veil to become a nun.
