The figures’ simple geometry, complicated surfaces, implicit illusionism, inscrutable expression, and, not least, development almost exclusively through wash and extensive heightening are all characteristic of an indigenous tradition. That tradition carries from the late medieval model book -- and despite Leonardo da Vinci’s introduction of the Florentine system of draftsmanship -- through Bramantino and Gaudenzio Ferrari at the beginning of the 16th century to its self-conscious reassertion by the painter-theorist Giovan Paolo Lomazzo at its end. This drawing was previously attributed to Vincenzo Foppa, the first major figure of the modern Milanese school, but bears no particular relation to his work. Much more cognate are the eccentric description, agitated personalities, and specific morphology in Bernardo Butinone’s paintings of the 1480s. If the hooded, seemingly monochrome habits identify these monks as Franciscans, then the pope would be Sixtus IV (fl. 1471-84). Whether a preliminary design or more likely a record of a motif, perhaps for a library, the drawing must correspond to one of the many new Observant foundations of the time in Lombardy.

The Blanton's painting belongs to a series of fifteen panels that illustrate important moments from the life of Jesus. As a whole, they would have formed a part of a large altarpiece and functioned as the Bible for those who could not read. In order to enhance the illusion of space, Bernardino Butinone constructs the scene using linear perspective that was developed earlier in the century.
