Kraemer, Ruth S. "Drawings by Gravelot in the Morgan Library." Master drawings, XX (Spring 1982), p. 14, no. 56.
According to Ruth Kraemer, Gravelot's design "is possibly intended for a vignette or headpiece in a book of poetry. There is another, slightly more finished drawing of the same composition, also on the Roederer mount, at the Houghton Library, Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass." A seated classical male figure is shown flanked by two female figures, one of whom appears to be Venus; he extends his hand to Cupid, who stands in front of him; at left, additional female figures are shown seated on clouds.
