Comment
Bohn in TIB mentioned two preparatory studies for this print. In her opinion, the one in the Uffizi, inv. no. 18207F was probably an early idea for the print, with the basic conception already formulated but with a greater interest in landscape that was finally reduced in the print. The other drawing in the Louvre, inv. no. 7173, was Annibale's final design for the print, incised for transfer. The print relates most closely to a painting attributed to Pellegrino Tibaldi in the Pinacoteca, Lovere, which probably inspired Annibale's composition. Another related painting is in Sir Denis Mahon's Collection, London, accepted by Bohlin as Annibale's autograph work.
