Cigoli was the most progressive of a group of Florentine artists who rejected the cool formula of Mannerism in favor of greater naturalism, dynamism and expressive immediacy. Active in Rome after 1604, he participated in several of the most important commissions of the period. This drawing was an advanced preparatory study for a painting commissioned by Margaret of Austria in 1607. An incessant and resourceful draftsman, Cigoli offered two possible placements for the figure of Saint Joseph amid swirling pen work and deft accents in blue wash.
