More information

This is a preliminary study for the central fgure in The Defence of Brescia, one of the four large octagonal ceiling paintings in the Sala del Maggior Consiglio of the Doge’s Palace in Venice. Tintoretto placed his nude model on a dais and drew him from below, taking the viewpoint in the large room into account. The drawing is squared for transferring the fgure to the canvas full scale.
