Summary

Philip Pouncey, in 1965, identified this drawing as Baccio Ciarpi's preparatory study for his altarpiece in the church of San Silvestro in Capite, Rome. In the painting Saint Louis, King of France, appears to the left of the Baptist. To the right of Saint Dionysius is Philip Neri (1515-1595), who appears without halo and not yet canonized: for this reason the painted altarpiece and its related drawing should be dated before 1622 (the year of Neri's canonization). Trained in Florence with the Tuscan painter Santi di Tito, Baccio Ciarpi moved to Rome by 1602: the drawing in the Museum collection represents a cornerstone of the artist's draftsmanship. (F.R.)
Baccio (Lorenzo Bartolo) Ciarpi (Italian, Barga, near Lucca 1578–1654 Rome)
