A Man Stricken by the Plague

WAG 1215


This drawing is a copy of a figure in Jacopo Bassano's altarpiece 'St Roche blessing the Plague Stricken', now in the Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan (Inv. 133). The altarpiece was originally in the Church of San Rocco, Vicenza and is dated shortly after 1575. Some scholars have suggested that the drawing itself dates from after the 16th century.
