Volterrano (Baldassare Franceschini) (Italian, 1611–1690) In preparation for a ceiling fresco of the Assumption commissioned by a Medici prince for a church in Florence, Volterrano made many compositional drawings. This study for the fresco, one of the most complete, includes all the principal elements of the painting, with only a few figures posed somewhat differently. The expansive illusionism of the scene and the figures' freedom of movement reflect Volterrano's awareness and understanding of the exuberant, illusionistic High Baroque style of Pietro da Cortona.

A great physical achievement, the commission forced the aging artist to work on scaffolding at dizzying heights and in an uncomfortable and badly lit environment.
