During his short career, Taddeo Zuccaro established himself as the most dynamic painter and draughtsman in Rome. His bold sketch for a fresco in San Marcello al Corso follows Raphael’s symmetrical composition of the same subject (no. 12), with the proconsul seated at the centre and St Paul and Elymas either side of the foreground. The fresco itself is very different in composition.
