Catalogue Note

This large drawing could be a design for a processional banner, or perhaps more likely for an engraving, as the Christ Child appears, unusually, to the left of the Madonna. Having trained in Florence, with Santi di Tito and then Stradanus, Tempesta moved to Rome in 1575 and spent most of the rest of his career there.  Though always also active as a painter, it was as a printmaker that Tempesta became particularly renowned, producing battle scenes, hunting and religious subjects in some quantities.
