After the execution of Michelangelo´s two famous frescoes, the chapel remained unfi¬nished until 1573 when the Bolognese artist Lorenzo Sabbatini was hired to complete the work. He painted three of four additional wall frescoes before his death in 1577. The project was then idled until 1580 when Federico Zuccaro was given the remainder of the commission (2). He finished the final wall and all ceiling decorations by December, 1581.
Over fifteen preparatory drawings for Federico´s paintings have thus far been identified, indicating among other things, that the artist considered several additional and alternate scenes to the ones finally represented, including a large altarpiece that was never execu¬ted. Of all drawings, only the present one is a chalk study of the studio model, thus de¬mon¬stra¬ting an important first stage in Federico´s working method.
