Cataloguing

Catalogue Note

Vermiglio's choice of copper for the support of for this charming, small-scale representation of the Adoration is unusual within his œuvre. Little is known of Vermiglio's life but he is recorded as being active in Rome by 1604 when he was in the studio of an Adriano de Monteleone, before returning to his native Piedmont before 1622. Whilst in Rome his work was profoundly influenced by Caravaggio, but after his return north his style seems to be more strongly influenced by Lombard and Bolognese masters such as Giulio Cesare Procaccini and Guido Reni.
