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.
