the Madonna di Loreto, with Sts. Sebastian and Roch, appearing before a crowd of monks and pilgrims [Members of the Third Order of St. Francis (?)]

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

The arms of Pope Sixtus V appear in the middle of the base. To either side of the arms are two empty escutcheons, each surmounted by a Cardinal´s hat, as if the particulars of the two cardinal donors had yet to be determined. As A. Zuccari has observed, in a note on the mount, the style is close to that of the Roman painters Giovanni Guerra (1544-1618) and Cesare Nebbia (c. 1536-1614). The two saints seen prominently to each side of the proposed altarpiece design are Sts. Sebastian and Roch, whose intercession was commonly invoked as protection against the plague. The present drawing appears to record an altar commissioned as such a votive offering.
