Trometta (Attributed to)

Draped Female Figure [the Virgin at the Foot of the Cross (¿?)]

Second half of the XVI century. Wash, White lead, Pencil, Grey-brown ink on grey paper. Not on display

Traditionally given to Polidoro da Caravaggio (c. 1499-ca. 1543). The figure´s pose and the handling of the media suggest the work of an artist from the circle of Taddeo Zuccaro (1529-1566). Especially suggestive of the latter´s influence are the heavily applied passages of white heightening and the rounded folds of drapery at the figure´s waist. The writer suggests that this drawing could be by Trometta. The figure seems to have been intended for that of the Virgin at the foot of the Cross.
