Six drawings in the Musée de Beaux-Arts, Valenciennes are related to Huet's Singerie series in Washington, but they postdate the paintings therefore cannot have been preparatory studies for the canvases. These drawings formed the basis for several prints in two series of engravings by Jean-Baptiste Guélard.
