Comment
Bohn in TIB claims this print exemplifies Annibale Carracci's late style, distant from his earlier, free linework, and with less emotional expressivity, which are the product of Annibale's decade long stay in Rome. Annibale's drawing in the Kunstmuseum, Düsseldorf, inv. no. FP 250, is probably his primo pensiero for this print. The final composition is recorded in his painterly drawing in reverse, incised for transfer, today in the Louvre, inv. no. 7142. It was one of the most famous prints by the artist, published in four states and reproduced in seventeen printed copies.
