Summary

This sheet is evidence of Andrea Mantegna’s influence on artists inFerrara. The pose of Saint Sebastian and the winding road atleft are derived from his paintings of the same subject (nowin Paris and Vienna). Also reminiscent of Mantegna is thesculptural form of the saint’s body, with its careful attentionto anatomical detail. Other features, however, such as thesquarish face and narrow limbs of the figure, are typical ofFerrarese painting of the period.
