This impressive, grandly scaled drawing of a flying angel, executed in pen and ink and wash and squared in black chalk, is clearly a preparatory study for a frescoed ceiling design.  It is very similar to angels in Franceschini's fresco of The Ascension of St Catherine of Vigri for the vault of the Chiesa del Corpus Domini in Bologna.1  The drawing can also be stylistically compared to other preparatory drawings for the same ceiling, in particular the study of the central figure of St. Catherine, now in a private collection, Northampton.2 1.
