Madonna and Child on a Stone Bench

Pen drawing, 135 x 87 mm
Pushkin Museum, Moscow

This pen drawing is a preliminary study of the group of figures in an engraving, and while it shows the Madonna with her hair down, the babe in arms and folds of her garments are already very similarly depicted. The background landscape shown in the copper engraving is still omitted here.
