Saint James the Greater

Saint James the Greater

 
 
description

Summary

In this etching copying Parmigianino’s Saint James the Greater, three-quarters of the upper margin has been trimmed away, leaving only the tip of the saint’s standard emerging from the top. The form of the etching itself conjured up this alteration, and another impression, at the British Museum, which has also been altered in this fashion.
