Comment
The British Museum database, inv. no. V,8.107 classifies the print as Italian and/or French from c. 1650-1700, and mentions the design is not recorded in the standard literature on Perino. The London impression has a lower margin with publisher's address and inscription: 'Gio. Jacomo Rossi formis Romae alla Pace / Perino del Vaga Inventor', while the Budapest print seems to be trimmed close to platemark.
