Cartoons

Designs drawn on cartone (pasteboard), like those of Raffaelle, formerly at Hampton Court, but now at Kensington Museum. They were bought by Charles I., and are seven in number: “The Miraculous Draught of Fishes,” “Feed my Lambs,” “The Beautiful Gate of the Temple,” “Death of Ananias,” “Elymas the Sorcerer,” “Paul at Lystra,” and “Paul on the Mars Hill.”

“They were designs for tapestries to be worked in Flanders.” —Julia B. De Forest: Short History of Art, p. 246.
