The grid laid over Passignano’s preparatory drawing The Feeding of the Five Thousand reveals an underlying cosmos, despite the multitude of figures. By grouping the crowds into organized sections, Passignano, an indefatigable draftsman, brings order to a difficult composition, just as Christ brings spiritual fulfillment to the unruly crowds.
