Comment
A very similar print is attributed to Lorenzo Loli by Bartsch, see XIX.167.5. According to Bartsch, they were produced after the same drawing. The difference between Loli's version and the present etching is that the former was printed from an oval plate and the index finger of the Virgin is shaded in Loli's print.
