Christ preaching to the multitude

Late XVI century. Wash, White lead, Pencil, Grey-brown ink on dark yellow paper.
Not on display

In spite of the optimism about the drawing´s authorship expressed by one of its earlier owners, this is surely a copy after a sixteenth-century Venetian composition, which I have not yet identified. The arrangement of the figures and horizontal format with rounded ends suggest a painted compartment by an artist such as Andrea Schiavone (c. 1510-1563) or Jacopo Tintoretto (1560-1635).
