Comment
Titian's altarpiece for SS Giovanni e Paolo, delivered in 1530, was destroyed in fire in 1867, therefore it is uncertain how closely the print relates to it. However, this engraving is an important evidence for the painting's appearance, preserved also in painted copies. According to Michael Bury 2001, Rota probably operated independently from Titian, himself making a drawing from the painting for the engraving. For Giovanni Battista Fontana's print of the same subject, see inv. no. 6981.
