Comment
The print forms a fan and might have been dedicated either to Archduchess Maria Maddalena of Austria, wife of Cosimo II de' Medici or to their daughter, Anne de' Medici. The attribution of the print to Della Bella, originating from Pierre-Jean Mariette, was refuted by De Vesme on the basis of its style.
