Lot Essay

This composition can be compared with Lomi’s Presentation in the Temple, the vast canvas completed in 1595 for the Duomo in Pisa, (see R.P. Ciardi, Aurelio Lomi, maniera e innovazione, Pisa, 1989, p. 52, fig. X). Several figure types correspond closely, most notably the bearded man in the lower left, who is shown gesturing towards the figure at his shoulder. In both works Lomi repeats the use of twisted columns to frame the composition.
