Passignano spent the earliest period of his career studying with Giovanni Battista Naldini and Girolamo Macchietti, before joining the studio of Federico Zuccaro upon the latter's arrival in Florence in 1579. The present sheet, on which the artist has adhered an alternative study of a kneeling shepherd to the lower left corner, can be compared on stylistic grounds to a drawing, recently on the German art market, depicting the Miracle of Manna1 and may be a preliminary study for an Adoration of the Shepherds, housed in the Cattedrale di San Martino, in Lucca.

Interestingly the verso of the present sheet is blackened for transfer, though there is no sign that it has also been indented.
