Comment
After the fresco in the Vatican Loggia attributed to Giovanni Francesco Penni, the lost model for which is preserved in a copy in the Albertina. According to Cirillo Archer in TIB the print is close to the fresco but has enough variations to suggest that it was not modelled directly from it. The composition was also engraved by Nicolas Beatrizet (Bartsch XV.244.9), whose print is closer to the fresco and the model. According to Davis, this Anonymous engraving is more stylized and probably derives from an earlier sketch, today lost. The landscape in both prints differs from the fresco and was probably invented by the printmakers.
