Comment
After Jacopo Ligozzi's unknown drawing. There is a related drawing by Agostino Carracci in the Royal Collection, Windsor, inv. no. 2315. According to Bohn in TIB, a drawing by Ludovico Carracci in the Uffizi, inv. no. 1509F, probably derives from the lost Ligozzi drawing. The print was dedicated Marie de Medici. It was an extremely popular print, as is proved by its eleven copies listed by Bohn in TIB 1995.
