Beheading of St. George

XVI century. Wash, Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink on paper. Not on display

Rightly connected by the Suidas with Cambiaso´s altarpiece in S. Giorgio, Genoa, datable around 1570. An autograph study for the composition, very different in design from the finished result and showing the surrounding frame, is in the Capodimonte Museum, Naples (inv. no. 1040).
