Comment
Reproduces Paolo Veronese's painting executed for the SS Giovanni e Paolo, Venice in c. 1582, today in the Hermitage, St Petersburg. The compression of the painting has been released somewhat by the printmaker, and the strong shadows have been moderated. Michael Bury in 2001 suggests that the painter, in close contact with Agostino Carracci, may have provided advice for the engraving. This is one of the five engravings executed by Agostino in 1582, that carry the name of Veronese as inventor. Bury in 2001 claims that the painter and the engraver must have been in close contact but in a variety of business arrangements.
