Seated Prophet in Meditation with Putto Standing Behind Him (Album II)

WAG 1995.159


A drawing in the same direction and almost the same size as a drawing by Master F P. The original Parmigianino drawing in the opposite direction and without the tablet shown in this drawing is at Chatsworth (Inv 795A). There is an etched reproduction of this drawing, possibly done for the comte de Saint-Morys, also in the Weld-Blundell collection (WAG 1995.360). [from Brooke, 'Mantegna to Rubens: the Weld-Blundell Drawings Collection', 1998, p187]
