This is a cartoon, or full-scale preparatory drawing, for part of Lanino's Madonna and Child Adored by Saints altarpiece in the National Gallery, London. This was executed in 1543 for the church of St Paul at Vercelli, north east of Turin, and shows the figures full length. Lanino was by then the leading artist of the region, and his style was strongly influenced by the works of both Leonardo da Vinci and Correggio. The cartoon is assembled from fragments of paper, applied to vellum.
