Comment
Since the original plates were preserved in the Medici Collection in the eighteenth century, the series was probably commissioned by the Medici after Della Bella's return to Florence. There is a related drawing in the Gabinetto dei Disegni e delle Stampe degli Uffizi, Florence, inv. no. 868 O.
