This drawing copies a 1530s altarpiece (now Galleria
Sabauda, Turin) by Gaudenzio Ferrari, a painter and
sculptor best known for his religious paintings. Ferrari was
born near Vercelli, in what is now Piedmont, and many of
his early works were commissioned by nearby churches and
convents; later in his career he executed works for Milan
and neighboring towns in Lombardy. He had a number of
followers, one of whom probably executed this drawing.
The figure of the saint at left is drawn on a separate strip
of paper that was added to the composition.
