Catalogue Note

This is very similar in scale, technique and style to a drawing of Two Standing Figures, sold New York, Sotheby's, 23 January 2008, lot 3.  They both compare closely with the Standing Figure of a Saint, in the Ambrosiana, which is inscribed Aurelio Luvino pi.re.All may have been designs for the same project, probably a series of Apostles.
