Paolo Farinati, a mannerist painter, engraver and architect, was mainly active in his home town of Verona.  He was strongly influenced by his younger contemporary, Paolo Veronese, and also by Parmigianino. Farinati produced a large number of drawings throughout his career and indeed it is through his drawings that he is most widely recognised and known.

The present work, executed in oil, must be a modello for one of Farinati’s paintings, but, it has not been possible to connect it to any of his known surviving compositions.  A powerful and moving interpretation of the Madonna and Child, it interestingly combines a more finished drawing in the upper register and a more rapidly drawn sketch below.  Whilst we are more familiar with Farinati’s work in pen and ink, his draughtsmanship is still instantly recognisable in this oil sketch.   One can compare the high degree of finish in the present work with Farinati’s more painterly drawings where he successfully employs pen and ink and wash and white heightening (see lot 3), producing aesthetically pleasing compositions that are reminiscent of the drawings of Veronese.
