Comment
There is a drawing in the Pierpont Morgan Library, New York, inv. no. 1878.17, on the verso of an impression of Annibale's print Christ Crowned with Thorns (TIB 3906.021), which is dated 1606. On this basis the print had been regarded as one of Annibale's latest prints. Bohn in TIB suggests the drawing is rather connnected with Annibale's lost painting of the same subject, known in several copies, and on the basis of style and its relation to Correggio's art suggested a slightly earlier date of c. 1604 for this print. A drawing in reverse and incised for transfer is preserved in Windsor Castle, Royal Collection, inv. no. 2118, and was Annibale's final study for this print.
