A rather neglected small panel with the Stigmata of St. Francis, previously attributed to Girolamo Muziano and his circle (or dubiously associated with Marcello Venusti), actually shows decisive formal similarities to Antonio Campi’s production. The piece is currently displayed in room XI in the Pinacoteca Vaticana (inv. 40370). Its intense pathetism and striking realism, very far from Muziano’s elegant mannerism, were probably the causes of its little appreciation among critics; if properly considered, these characters, together with the peculiar pre-Caravaggian side lighting, support the attribution to the painter from Cremona. Several stylistic elements allow us to situate it in the time-span between the Beheading of St. John the Baptist for San Paolo Converso in Milan (1571) and the Prayer in the Garden for Santa Maria della Noce in Inverigo (1577). Those were years of hectic activity for the artist, who was well integrated in the local milieu of religious and secular patrons, and engaged in a fruitful confrontation with the Leonardesque tradition, as demonstrated by the formal reference to Cesare da Sesto’s Salome in the altarpiece with the Beheading of St. John the Baptist in San Sigismondo in Cremona.
