Comment
Bohn in TIB 1994 argued for the date of 1581 for the series of ten engravings, which was executed for the popular market and shows a less elaborated finish of the plates. The series was assembled differently by the various writers. Although its size and border are different from the other nine prints, Bohn suggested this Holy Family was the earliest of the series.
