Comment
Bartsch proposed it was either Giulio Bonasone's or Giulio Romano's invention. Massari in Rome 1993 relates the subject to Giulio Romano's invention in a lunette of the Sala delle Aquile, Palazzo del Te, Mantua, painted in 1527. There is a copy in reverse by the Master of the name of Jesus Christ from 1561. Related to a drawing after an antique prototype by Girolamo da Carpi in the Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest, inv. no. 1952.
