(cited by fornasari, ibid., p. 218). a preparatory drawing for the composition, in pencil on paper, squared for transfer (465 by 643 mm.), is in the galleria d'arte moderna, palazzo pitti, florence, inv. giorn. 5809 (see fig. 1; also reproduced in l. fornasari, op. cit., 2004, p. 212, fig. 176). an engraving of the composition by pietro fontana, based on a drawing by emidio cateni after benvenuti, was published by palmerini in 1821 and the painting was described as still hanging in ricasoli's palazzo (see fig. 2; also reproduced in fornasari, op. cit., p. 212, fig. 177). the pose of the reclining nude is very similar to that of the murdered abel in benvenuti's fresco representing the death of abel in the cappella dei principi, church of san lorenzo, florence (reproduced in a. cera, la pittura neoclassica italiana, milan 1987, no. 129). please note that the painting has been requested for the forthcoming monographic exhibition on pietro benvenuti, due to be held in 2007-8.
