    Étienne Moreau-Nélaton: 'Crayons François de la Collection de M.G. Salting', no. 29; A. Zvereva, 'Portraits dessinés de la cour des Valois: Les Clouet de Catherine de Médicis', Paris, 2011, no. 398.

    According to M-N and Dimier the drawing represents Marguerite de Lorraine. Dimier attributed it to Pierre Dumonstier. Zvereva agrees with the attribution to Dumonstier but identifies the sitter as Christine de Lorraine, Grand Duchess of Tuscany.
