Christ Healing the Son of the Widow of Nain

Second half of the XVI century. Yellow wash, Pink wash, Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink on yellow paper. Not on display

In a pencil note on the old mount, M. Hofstede suggested the drawing could be a study for Federico Zuccari´s altarpiece of this subject, which he painted in 1568 for the Cathedral at Orvierto. In a subsequent note, J. A. Gere commented that the drawing wasn´t by Federico.

Since there are a number of differences in the pose of the figures between the Prado drawing and the final painted composition; the most significant being the omission from the drawing of the man in the right corner who looks out at the spectator with both hands raised in an expression of amazement, it is likely that the drawing was copied from a preparatory study.
