Allegory of Magnanimity

1683. Grey-brown wash, Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink on laid paper.
Not on display

The drawing depicts an allegorical figure seated on a footstool, dressed in armour and wearing a helmet. Meanwhile, she is holding a sceptre in her right hand and a round shield in her left. A lion appears behind her.

In fact, it is a work typical of Palomino, a preparatory drawing (with some variants) for the figure that symbolises the Refugium pecatorum (‘Refuge of Sinners’) in the cupola interior of the Church of the Desamparados in Valencia, painted in 1700.
