Comment
On the basis of the French King's privilege on the third plate, Anthony Blunt dated the series to 1650, before Della Bella's return to Paris; see Anthony Blunt, The Drawings of G. B. Castiglione and Stefano della Bella in the Collection of Her Majesty the Queen at Windsor Castle, London 1954, p. 90. Jessica Mack-Andrick, however, supposed that Della Bella executed the etchings shortly after his return to Florence, also around 1650 and sent the plates back to Paris; see Karlsruhe 2005. There is a related drawing in the Biblioteca Marucelliana, inv. no. Stefano della Bella, Vol. D, no. 58.
