The towering figure of Saint Christopher was explored by Palma in two drawings in the Galleria Estense, Modena (inv. 780; J. Bentini, Disegni della Galleria Estense di Modena, Modena, 1989, p. 154, ill.) and the Szépmuvészeti Múzeum, Budapest (inv. 2259; I. Fenyo, Disegni veneti del Museo di Budapest, exhib. cat., Venice, Fondazione Cini, 1965, no. 36, ill.). While these works have been tentatively connected to Palma's early fresco in the convent of Santa Maria dei Crociferi, Venice, the robust style of this drawing – the only one within the group executed on blue paper – suggests a later date.
