Comment
Suzanne Boorsch recognized that the print Bartsch described as original is in fact this copy. Adamo Scultori's print, made before 1582, is known only in a single impression, see Davis. The composition derives from Sebastiano del Piombo's fresco of 1516-24 in the Cappella Borgherini, San Pietro in Montorio, Rome, for which preparatory drawings were made by Michelangelo (See Michael Hirst, Sebastiano del Piombo, Oxford 1981, pp. 49-65).
