Comment
Ludovico Carracci's original print was signed and dated. Ludovico experimented with engraving and drypoint on a tin plate, which soon became worn. There is a unique first state of the original print in the British Museum. For the three connected drawings (Musée des Beaux-arts, Besancon; Biblioteca Ambrosiana, Milan; Timothy Rice Collection, London), see Bohn in TIB.
