Lot Essay

This monumental and beautifully preserved sheet, carefully drawn in the artist’s polished chalk technique, relates to the imposing figure of Saint John the Evangelist painted by Badalocchio about 1613, today in the Museo Civico of Modena (Fig. 1; D. Benati, Tesori ritrovati. La pittura del ducato estense nel collezionismo privato, Milan 1998, p. 88, ill. and E. Negro, M. Prondini, La scuola dei Carracci, Modena 1995, p. 94). Born in Parma and active for important patrons in Rome and Reggio Emilia, Badalocchio matured his draftsmanship under Agostino and Annibale Carracci in Bologna and Rome.
