Catalogue Note

The composition is taken from Correggio's fresco, The Assumption of the Virgin, in the cupola of the Duomo in Parma.  The two figures are copies after the pendentive frescoed with the subject of St. Thomas.1  Popham describes the present study as an 'obvious copy, perhaps sixteenth century, from part of the pendentive in the cathedral.'
