Comment
See under inv. no. 6061. This print illustrates the third intermezzo. Bernardo Buontalenti's drawing in reverse is in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, inv. no. E. 1188-1931. As in the case of inv. no. 6061, Agostino Carracci probably worked after Andrea Boscoli's copy, but no such drawing has survived. No preparatory drawing by Agostino has been found as well.
