The subject of this paper is the newly found contract for Gaudenzio Ferrari’s Mystic Marriage of Saint Catherine with Saints Joseph, Agabius and Gaudentius, drawn up on February 25, 1530. The author reconstructs the commission of this work and the original location of the panel, tracing its movements within the cathedral of Novara up to its current location in the chapel of Saint Catherine. The work was commissioned by the two chaplain curates of the cathedral, who wanted the tutelary saints of the parish to be represented, and gave precise instructions to Gaudenzio on the subject. In the upper part of the altarpiece the artist painted the «imaginem Christi in pietate et imagines B. M. V. et S.ti Jo. Evangelistae», which still exists today in the chapel but in a different position, as a result of a reassembly which took place in 1883. The contract also allows us to return to this work the Putti dancing and making music now preserved in the collections of the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo. The conditions of payments (totalling 400 lire) and the timing are illustrated: the last payment to Gaudenzio Ferrari took place on April 23, 1534.
