Lot Essay


This sheet can be related with a series of drawings by Campagnola showing scenes from the Apocalypse, of which twenty-two are in the Royal Collection, Windsor Castle (see M. Clayton, ‘Drawings by Domenico Campagnola after Giusto de Menabuoni’s Apocalypse Frescoes,’ Master Drawings, XLII, 2004, no. 4, pp. 315-332). Those drawings are based on the fresco cycle with forty-two scenes from the Apocalypse painted by the 14th Century artist Giusto de’Menabuoni as part of his decoration of the Baptistery of the Duomo, Padua, around 1376-1378. The present drawing, however, does not seem to correspond to any of the frescoes in the Baptistery, though similar scenes with angels blowing trumpets do appear.
