God the Father with Angels Appearing among Clouds

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

Farinati was one of the most prolific draftsmen active in Verona in the second half of the sixteenth century. His pictorial approach to drawing -many of his studies are carried out largely with the brush, with only occasional touches of the pen- and his liking for white heightening are features traditional to sixteenth-century Veronese drawing, and these same traits are seen in the drawing attributed to Domenico Brusasorci, Hercules Firing an Arrow at the Centaur Nessus, Who Flees with the Nymph Dejanira on his Back (D2996). Although Farinati´s drawing style was largely based on that of Veronese (1528-1588), the plasticity of the form -a quality particularly evident here- may have come to him thanks to a visit to Rome in the first half of the 1540s, where he would have encountered the work of Michelangelo (1475-1564), Perino del Vaga (1501-1547), and Polidoro da Caravaggio (c. 1499-c. 1543) (Text drawn from Turner, N.: From Michelangelo to Annibale Carracci. A century of Italian drawings from the Prado, Art Services International-Museo Nacional del Prado, 2008, p. 102).
