Comment
The inscription in the lower margin claims that the print appeared in Nicolas Beatrizet’s own publishing house. It reproduces Michelangelo’s sculpture, today in the Roman church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva. The statue originated in Florence in 1519–20 and was transferred in 1521 in an unfinished state to Rome, where it was completed by Michelangelo’s pupil, Pietro Urbino.
