Comment
This was Annibale Carracci's first experiment with etching. The dating of this print led Bohn in TIB to suppose that Annibale might have learned etching from someone other than Agostino, whose only two etchings date from 1589. No preparatory drawings for this print are known. The plate is still preserved in the Calcografia Nazionale, Rome.
