    The present drawing copies Romanelli's tapestry cartoon, now in the Norton Simon Museum, Pasadena. The tapestry was one in a series of eight illustrating the story of Dido and Aeneas. The designs were commissioned from Romanelli by Cardinal Carlo Barberini and the tapestries were woven between 1635-45.Our drawing is most probably a studio replica.
