Liotard was particularly proud of owning the large (now lost) painting he here copied in pastel. He believed it to be by Titian, even though it was closer to compositions by Anthony van Dyck, and he made several copies of it, including a print. This one is unusual in that the pastels have been applied directly to the bare wood.
