[Allegorical scene of female figures in clouds atop columns]

description

Summary

Unfinished drawing shows three female figures and three cherubs in clouds atop columns, perhaps a design for a certificate. In the center a woman wearing a head scarf holds and touches three cherubs. To her right, Minerva stands with a modest headdress, a sword tucked under one arm, and an anchor by her side. To her left, another deity, perhaps Fame, holds a book.
