    Nicholas Turner recognised that this is a study for the angel holding up the cross in the cupola decoration in the church of Sant' Alessandro, Parma, for which payments to the artist are recorded in 1627 (A. Ghidiglia Quintivalle, 'Alessandro Tiarini alla corte dei Farnese', Paragone, 1966, XVII, pp. 37-44, fig. 37 showing painted figure related to drawing). For discussion of the commission see M. Pirondini et al. 'Alessandro Tiarini', Reggio Emilia, 2000, no. 179, pp. 202-5.
