Currently not on display

A pen and brown ink drawing of a scene in which Thetis (on the left) urges her son Achilles (standing with arms akimbo) to rejoin the battle against Troy. The figures on the far right, a soldier seated on the ground and the standing figure of ?Hephaestus, who has just made Achilles's armour on his anvil, seem drawn by a different hand altogether, with heavy-handed outlines and cursory broadly-hatched shadings.
