Catalogue Note

This is part of Giandomenico's series of over one hundred variations on the theme of God the Father supported by Angels and Cherubs.  When James Byam Shaw wrote about them, the highest number he knew was 102, but since then 103, 104 and 106 have come onto the market.  Byam Shaw rightly felt that the relation of some of these compositions to the upper section of Giambattista's important altarpiece Saint Thecla praying for the plague-stricken, in the cathedral at Este, would suggest a dating for the series after 1759.1
