Comment
After Jacopo Tintoretto's painting for the altar of the Albergo della Scuola di San Gerolamo Presso S. Fantin, c. 1575. For Agostino Carracci's two related drawings in the same direction, see Bohn in TIB 1995. A privilege was added to the inscription in the second state. The print follows the painting very closely, but Agosino reduced the strong chiaroscuro of the painting and altered the proportions of the parts. Bury in 2001 claims that Agostino made his own drawing of the painting, amd published the print himself. Later he sold the plate to Donato Rascicotti.
