Comment
For Mantegna's original, see inv. no. 5010. According to Zucker in TIB, this copy was based on the second or third state of the original. David Landau in London and New York 1992 showed that measurements of the original and this copy confirm that the latter was made by tracing the lines of an impression of the original. He argued for the authorship of Giovanni Antonio da Brescia on the basis of watermarks and an impression of this print in Amsterdam, printed on the verso of an indulgence published in Rome during the time the printmaker was living there. He dated this print to 1509, the date of Brescia's Flagellation, with which this work has other connections.
