Comment
Due to its theme, the print had been considered as part of the erotic series called Lascivie (Bartsch XVII.107.123 to XVII.109.135). Bartsch did not include it in the series but listed it immediately after. According to Bohn in TIB 1995 it is stylistically different and should be dated earlier, to c. 1590.
