Comment
It was Diane de Grazia Bohlin who restored this print to Annibale and attributed the related drawing in Chatsworth, Devonshire Collection, inv. no. 397 (today attributed to Denys Calvaert) also to Annibale. The print reproduces a painting by Lorenzo Sabatini and Denys Calvaert in the Malvasia Chapel of San Giacomo Maggiore, Bologna, of c. 1565-66. According to Michael Bury in 2001, it was more possibly executed in preparation for the painting than for the print. He notes however, that some elements connecting the print and the drawing suggest the drawing was re-used as the starting point for the design of the engraving.
