Comment
The print is a free variant of Andrea Schiavone's other etching of the same subject, after Parmigianino (Bartsch XVI.8.5), see inv. no. 6307. According to Chiara Callegari's note on the mat, this is a second state impression. She recognized a fifth state impression, see inv. no. 6306. According to Dillon in Venice 1981, an impression in the Albertina, retouched in colour, can be related to Schiavone's drawing also in the Albertina, inv. no. 2638, that was connected with this print by Oberhuber in 1963 and also with Parmiginaino's drawings that served as its inspiration.
