Comment
The figure of the Virgin resembles that in Andrea Schiavone's painting formerly in the Collection of David J. Impastato, New York; see Richardson 1980, no. 281. A preparatory drawing for the etching is in the Uffizi, inv. no. 13597; see ibid., no. 137. According to Chiara Callegari's note on the mat, it is a sixth state impression.
