Research in Progress
At right, a circular pediment is suggested, with an escutcheon in the center, at left a more elaborate one, surbased, with separate cornices in front, and a shell above a kind of volute console. At right, a festoon springs from an escutcheon, and a cherub is outside the frame, below the entablature. At left is a cherub, below the capital of the framing pilaster. There are corrections, in pencil, in the left half and letters: "N A V" which seems to refer to the color of the respective parts.
