Comment
There is a related drawing in the Gabinetto dei Disegni e delle Stampe degli Uffizi, Florence, inv. no. 12582 S. Since the sketchbook to which this drawing belongs is dated to 1636, the print should have been made at least two years later than De Vesme thought. On the basis of its style, Anna Forlani Tempesti dates it even later, to the 1650s; see Anna Forlani Tempesti, Mostra di incisioni di Stefano della Bella, exhibition catalogue, Gabinetto dei Disegni e delle Stampe degli Uffizi, Florence 1973, no. 68.
