Description

Peterzano's Deposition (Milan, S Fedele) perhaps dates from 1583-1584, but, although it is signed S Petrazanus Titiani Al[umnus] (i.e. pupil of Titian), it is closer to the work of Moretto. In 1584 Caravaggio entered his workshop on a four-year contract. The absence of any works or documents between 19 Feb 1585 and 26 Sept 1589 has led scholars to suggest a long stay in Rome.
