Sebastiano painted several versions of the mythological episode of the goddess Diana casting out her pregnant attendant Callisto. This drawing probably relates to a fresco in Palazzo Pitti in Florence, where Sebastiano worked from about 1704–11. The delicate washes reflect his encounters with the work of Bolognese artists in his early training.
