Comment
Pendant to Bartsch XV.153.166, see inv. no. 6468. The female figure is related to a drawing in reverse in the Louvre, inv. no. 6088, attributed to Polidoro da Caravaggio. According to Massari, the drawing was perhaps part of a series of architectural details drawn by Polidoro. Massari supports this by the series of etchings attributed by Zerner to Jean Mignon (Zerner 1969, JM.9 to JM.20), reproducing the same figures in ovals.
