Lot Essay

This is a study for the large canvas (measuring 250 x 180 cm) of the same subject, and of only slightly altered composition, in Santa Maria Assunta, Venice (Rinaldi, op. cit., no. 436, fig. 639). The main difference between the picture and the drawing is the absence of The Holy Trinity in the picture and the addition of a tree trunk lower left. A study for the angel and boy in the foreground was sold at Sotheby's, London, 25 June 1970, lot 30.
We are grateful to Stefania Mason Rinaldi for her assistance in cataloguing this drawing.
