Borgianni, principally a Caravaggesque painter, made two original etchings just before his death. Bold in massing, dramatic in light, and vigorous in mark, they are among the very few prints to evoke the physical presence and intense feeling of the new realism. Related to several painted versions of the subject, the Saint Christopher is the larger, more audacious in the hulking form and foreshortened stride of the giant, and painterly in its printing. The Collection includes an equally fine impression of the other etching, a Lamentation of Christ.
