The Oratorio del Gonfalone was one of the two most important pictorial projects in Rome during the 1560s and 1570s. Half a dozen of the city’s leading young painters collaborated on a fresco cycle of scenes from the Passion of Christ with elaborate decorative surrounds. Zuccaro was responsible for the Flagellation and above it a prophet and sibyl whose texts prefigure the event. Characteristically confident in its plasticity and elegant in its line, this drawing is one of several preparatory studies for the group.
