The most conservative Genoese painter of late century, Castello translated the later style of his teacher, Cambiaso, into an even more self-consciously neutral one based upon early 16th-century examples and suited to Counter-Reformation dictates as well as book illustration. This drawing renders Abraham’s proposal to Lot that they settle their differences by parting ways (Genesis 13: 5-9). Its or-derly composition, patient articulation, and clear narration are characteristic of the artist’s work.
