Nota del catálogo

Pomponio Amalteo was the pupil and son-in-law of Pordenone.  These two studies come from a small album of drawings that had a traditional attribution to Pordenone.  The album contained seventeen drawings, and it was inscribed in a seventeenth hand: Disegni di Man del / Purdenone / rarissimi.  These drawings were later rightly attributed to Pomponio Amalteo by Charles Cohen, who established that they are preparatory for the artist's pendentives in Santa Maria delle Grazie, Prodolone (Friuli).  Amalteo signed the contract for this commission in 1538.  The drawings come so close to the style of his master Pordenone that for some time the attribution to Amalteo has been debated. Three drawings from the same album are now in the Metropolitan Museum.1
