Comment
The identification of this print is based on Richardson's description. If it is correct, the etching belongs to the same series as Richardson's nos. 83, 105, 127 and 129. According to Dillon in Venice 1981, this print originally belonged to the apostle series (see under inv. no. 6309), and was later substituted, probably because of the wearing of the plate, by the other version of this figure, see our inv. no. 1916-263. Dillon claims this is an exceptionally rare print and was perhaps discarded by the artist for the unsatisfactory result.
