Kraemer, Ruth S. "Drawings by Gravelot in the Morgan Library." Master drawings, XX (Spring 1982), p. 14, no. 59.
Gravelot's drawing, with visible pentimenti, probably was preparatory for a book illustration, although it has not been connected to a publication. A bearded man is shown standing before a seated and crowned woman, at whom he gestures or points with his left hand. This may represent Haman before Esther.
