Transfer drawing of composition of 1968.15:1, with a few lines added in graphite.
One of four preparatory drawings by Gravelot in the library's collection of a design for an engraved frontispiece executed by Jean Charles Le Vasseur for Henri Panckoucke's Lettre de don Carlos à Elisabeth (Paris : Panckoucke et Vve Duchesne, 1768).
"Two of the Morgan Library's drawings (1968.15:3-4 nos. 30-31) are closer to the Le Vasseur engraving than the other two (1968.15:1-2 nos. 28-29); they show Don Carlos seated at a table while he is seen standing in the other two sketches; the latter may therefore represent an earlier idea for this composition." Cf. Kraemer.
