Comment
The print was left unfinished at Agostino Carracci's death in 1602 and was completed by Francesco Brizio. Brizio probably worked on the plate from the second state. Ludovico Carracci might have taken the plate with him to Rome to have it published by Pietro Stefanoni. This became one of Agostino's most popular prints, after which thirteen printed copies were made. As an example of his late style, it shows a taste toward a Michelangelesque mannerism typical of the Bolognese Pellegrino Tibaldi, as well as the influence of Hendrik Goltzius. For the preparatory studies see Bohn in TIB. Because the margin has been trimmed, it cannot be decided whether this impression was Bartsch's second state or an earlier state undescribed by him.
