Passerotti, Bartolomeo (Copy Michelangelo (Michelangelo Buonarroti))

The Good Thief, Copied from Michelangelo's Last Judgement

1560 - 1570. Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink on yellow paper Not on display

In Michelangelo´s Last Judgement (see D1733 and D1732), the Good Thief appears at the far right, on the same level as Christ himself, and is one of the most conspicuous figures in this great, multi-figured fresco. In spite of the evident assurance of Passerotti´s line-work, there are many pentiments in the chalk under-drawing, especially in the Thief´s downwardly extending left leg.
