Design for a Wall Monument with Papal and Ducal Crowns (S. Giovanni in Laterano), 1764–67

This design, striking in its use of pen and wash, seems to have been intended for the proposed Lateran tribune. On its verso is a fragmentary ground plan of the tribune, which continues in another drawing, also in the Morgan Library’s collection, with a sketch of the choir wall.
