Lot Essay

A similar group with the apotheosis of a saint surrounded by putti can be found in a picture showing Saint Zechariah, executed in 1599 for San Zaccaria, Venice (S.M. Rinaldi, Palma il Giovane: L'opera completa, Milan, 1984, no. 486, fig. 284).
We are grateful to Stefania Mason Rinaldi for her assistance in cataloguing this drawing and for confirming the attribution.
