Abstract :
Publishes new documentary evidence casting light on the history and chronology of the high altar of S. Carlo ai Catinari, Rome, which was commissioned by Filippo Colonna in 1631, with additional money and four porphyry columns committed to the project commissioned from Francesco Peparelli in 1637. Contracts drawn up in 1643 (transcribed in the appendix) for sculpture by Orfeo Boselli and bronzes by Pasquale Pasqualini establish that the final project was designed 1642-1643 by Martino Longhi (after Peparelli's death), and records of payment show that the altar was excecuted 1643-1651. Also discusses the altarpiece by Pietro da Cortona, S. Carlo Borromeo Carrying the Cross in Procession, 1651-1667, noting its relationship to preparatory studies and to the altarpiece of the provisional altar, by Commodi. ;
