Lot Essay


Both sides of the first drawing in this lot have been related by Silvana Bareggi and Filippo Maria Ferro (op. cit.) to Tanzio’s frescoed decoration of the Nazari chapel in the Basilica of San Gaudenzio in Novara (see also lot 65). The two other drawings are studies for figures in the Betrothal of the Virgin in the chapel of the Madonna del Rosario in the Basilica di Sant’Antonio Abate e Santa Francesca Cabrini in Sant’Angelo Lodigiano.
