This fascinating study for a Christ Child seems to be a modello, in reverse, for the infant Christ in Gaudenzio Ferrari's altarpiece, Madonna and Child enthroned with St. Martin and ?St. Maurice, datable just before 1535, now in the Galleria Sabauda, Turin (fig. 1). The Christ Child in the present sheet must be close in size to its counterpart in the painting.  The hand of the Bishop Saint is indicated in the drawing to the left, with above it and to the right the two hands of the Madonna.

This must be a preparatory drawing, and not a study after the painting, and a further design for the right hand of the Madonna holding the Child can be seen above the bishop's hand. 

A drawing copying the entire composition of the painting by a Follower of Gaudenzio is in the Lehman Collection in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.1
