The Gathering of Manna

Aurelio Lomi Italian

Not on view

Aurelio Lomi, Orazio Gentileschi’s older brother, was active in Pisa, Florence, and Genoa. This monochromatic sketch of the biblical scene of the Gathering of Manna, with prophets reclining over the curves of a lunette, may have been done in preparation for a mural painting, perhaps in the cathedral in Pisa where Lomi worked in the first decade of the seventeenth century.
