Comment
Reproduces the painting on the high altar of the Observant Franciscans of Urbino, executed in 1574-76. It represents Christ instituting the plenary indulgence of the Portiuncula, near Assisi. Barocci was granted a ten-year papal privilege covering this print (the document is preserved in the Archivio Segreto Vaticano), which is extraordinary for guaranteeing a monopoly for Barocci over representations of the subject. Michael Bury in 2001 supposed the print was made in partnership with the Franciscans. The plate came into the possession of the Venetian publisher Stefano Scolari in the seventeenth century, who reworked it and added his publisher’s address.
