This drawing is related to the Saint Sebastian in scale, complex space, calligraphic charge, and autonomous function. Its mythological subject and format, how-ever, correspond to the sort of scene Cambiaso and Bergamasco were contemporaneously introducing to the decoration of Genoese palaces. The sheet is further distinguished by its exceptional freshness, without any deterioration of the black-brown, iron gall ink favored by the artist or any fading of its sweeping washes

Possibly an autographed replica (Jonathan Bober 5/13/11)
