Comment
The series is composed of prints copied in reverse after the series of fourteen prints representing Christ and the apostles and St Paul by the Master FP, designed by Parmigianino (Bartsch XVI.19.1 to XVI.22.13). According to Dillon in Venice 1981, they belong to the first prints by Schiavone.
