Figure of Christ, from a Composition of “Noli me tangere”

First half of the XVII century. Pencil, Grey-brown ink on paper Not on display

The drawing was almost certainly copied from the corresponding detail in an engraving by Luca Ciamberlano of 1609, which reproduces the painting by Barocci commissioned by Buonvisi family of Lucca and today in the collection of Lord Allendale at Bywell Hall, which is now alas a wreck. Ciamberlano´s print is reproduced in both Olsen and Emiliani, and it can be seen that in Barocci´s composition of the Buonvisi Noli me tangere, Christ´s right hand does not gesture towards the Magdalen, as in his earlier Munich and Uffizi paintings of the subject, but rests on the top of a nearby fence.
