Nativity, with St. Francis and a female monastic saint; behind angels carrying symbols of the Passion

XVI century. Wash, Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink on yellow paper. Not on display

The correct attribution to India, also a painter from Verona and one of a number of local followers of Veronese (1528-1588), is Alessandro Ballarin´s. India worked almost exclusively in and around his native city, specializing above all as painter of frescoes for both churches and villas of the region. His drawing style combines the local idiom, based on Veronese, with aspects taken from Giulio Romano (c. 1499-1546), Vasari (1511-1574) and Taddeo Zuccaro (1529-1566). Particularly characteristic of India´s graphic work are the kitten-like faces of some of the figures and the affected curls of hair suggested by loops of the pen
