St. Catherine

XVI century. Pencil on yellow paper.
Not on display

The figure type and pose of the saint indeed suggest an early sixteenth-century Emilian prototype, though this drawing can be no more than a feeble reflection of such a model. In the lower left, the artist, has failed to differentiate adequately between the saint´s drapery and what might well be her attribute of a wheel, the curved form of which is easily mistaken for part of her outer robe.
