Comment
According to Bartsch, the word 'restituit' suggests that the plate was originally engraved by another artist and Nicolas Beatrizet only retouched it. Bianchi adds that 'formis suis exc' indicates Beatrizet was also the publisher. She claims Bandinelli's invention is related to a relief in the Basilica di Loreto (1518-19), for which a preliminary sketch is preserved in the Uffizi, inv. no. 712E. The same subject was engraved by an anonymous master, see Bartsch XV.13.1.
