Artist
Workshop of Niccolò Angelo Tinassi (active between 1654 and 1696)
Title
Saint Thomas Aquinas vanquishing a six-headed dragon
Date
By 1687
Medium
Engraving. After a 1662 design by Pietro da Cortona (Pietro Berretini) (1595-1669) via an engraving by François Spierre (1639-1681). Both the Cortona design and the Spierre engraving show Saint Michael the Archangel instead of Aquinas. Versions of this engraving were used as frontispieces for the Missale sacri ordinis praedicatorum of 1687, 1705, 1728, and 1768. The version illustrated here comes from the 1705 edition. It was published in Rome by Francisco Gonzaga at the Typographia of Niccolò Angelo Tinassi.
