Anonymous (Copy: Vasari, Giorgio)

Saints Luke and John

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

In a nineteenth-century inscription and in further annotations on the reverse, the drawing is given to the Sienese Domenico Beccafumi (1484-1551). In 1980, in a pencil note on the mount, Anna Forlani rightly pointed out that it is near to Vasari. However, the feeble execution points to a copy rather than to an original by the master.
