PROPERTY FROM THE FAMILY OF EMILE WOLF
The present work, in which Antiochus is depicted lying on his back, his head resting limply on its side while his right arm lies across his covered waist, differs significantly in the positioning of his arms to the Chantilly painting, illustrating perfectly the lengths that Ingres went to, to perfect the composition. This point is further illustrated by the large number of surviving drawings relating to Ingres’ various treatments of the subject of Antiochus and Stratonice, the vast majority of which form part of the great corpus of his drawings in Montauban.2 In spite of this and Ingres’ prodigious graphic output, only one drawing relating to the figure of Antiochus has appeared on the art market in recent years,3 though this was notably executed on a significantly smaller scale than the present work.
