Comment
No preliminary drawing for the print survived, but the inscription names Jacopo Ligozzi as designer, court painter of Francesco I de’Medici in Florence at this time. The style of the work may be compared with Ligozzi's pen and brown ink drawing in the Louvre, inv. no. 5023, see Gnann 2013, p. 398, fig. 100.
