- Curator's comments
- No. 214 and no. 215 are copied from the Ligorio style but without inscription and outer mouldings in Windsor no. 8408.
About no. 215:
Cumont, Symbolisme funeraire (1942), p. 462, note 3, states that this monument is still lost.
Comparison of the treatment of the youth leading the chariot with the style of the horseman of the lamp Bartoli-Bellori, Lucerne, I, pl. 24, might suggest Pietro Santi Bartoli (1635-1700) as the author of this series of drawings.
