Catalogue Note

This is a highly finished preparatory study for Santi di Tito's altarpiece in Santa Croce, Florence (Fig.1).
Other studies for the composition are in the Istituto Nazionale per la Grafica, Rome1 and the Art Institute of Chicago,whilst a preliminary study, with many differences to the finished altarpiece, was sold at Sotheby's New York in 1985.A 16th century copy, long thought to be autograph, is today housed in the Hamburg Kunsthalle,4 whilst the Uffizi possesses a drawing, first given by Spalding and subsequently by Fischer, to Cigoli, described by both as a copy after the Santa Croce altarpiece.5
