Comment
The design had traditionally been attributed to Baccio Bandinelli, on the basis of the composition's similarity with prints of his invention. However, Suzanne Boorsch in Print Quarterly 16 (1999), pp. 271-30 attributed the design to Francesco Salviati; the first state of the print has the lettering 'Jo. Baptista de Cavalleris Lagerinus incideb. in Aedibus Salvianis. MDLXI Romae'.
