Saint Crispin and Saint Crispinian

First third of the XVII century. Grey-brown wash, Pencil ground, Black ink on dark yellow paper.
Not on display

The scene takes place in a shoe shop where one of the saints sits on a stool and sews a shoe. The other is standing while cutting leather on the bench. The Virgin is depicted in heavenly glory with the Christ Child seated on her knees.

This drawing is likely to be from the first third of the 17th century. It has been executed by employing a technique somewhat reminiscent of Pacheco’s drawings and of the work of draughtsmen from El Escorial at the end of the 16th century, including Barroso and López de Escuriaz.
