This is a very fine drawing, signed with monogram by Dujardin. The inscription upper right might refer to the place where this drawing was made – perhaps „in Roma fecit“. There is an engraving by Dujardin with this scene. (7,5 x 9,8 cm; https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/object/P_J-28-14) The present drawing might be the preparatory sketch.
