Comment
Part of Andrea Schiavone's second series representing Christ and the twelve apostles. This series differs from Schiavone's previous apostle series, etched after Parmigianino, in their greater size, more mature etching manner, and their original invention. The pose of this figure and some details of the drapery reflect the chiaroscuro woodcut by Domenico Beccafumi (Bartsch XII.71.14).
