Comment
This is Agostino Carracci's earliest print after Federico Barocci (Bartsch XVII.3.2), for which see inv. no. 5946. Barocci's print was also copied by Annibale Carracci, see TIB 3906.003. According to Pillsbury and Richards 1978, no. 78, Agostino sacrificed Barocci's characteristic light effects for the sake of absolute clarity of form.
