PARIS NOGARI (C. 1536-1601)

The Presentation in the Temple

c. 1580

RCIN 990162

A study for Nogari’s painting of the Circumcision of Christ in the church of Santo Spirito in Sassia, Rome. The painting is high on the right wall of a chapel, and so the scene is depicted as if from below. Nogari adopted many of the devices typical of late Roman Mannerism – half-length figures cut off by the frame, an interest in exotic costume, and a dramatic use of highlights. No. 28
