Comment
This was Orazio Farinati's most popular print, made after his father's design. A drawing in reverse of the left part of the image, not surely by Paolo Farinati's hand, is preserved in the Albertina, inv. no. 1587, while another related drawing containing the entire composition in the same direction and size was sold by Finarte in 1976, cat. no. 234. There are seven known states of the print, with the date always corrected in the inscription, ranging from 1583 in the frist state to 1599 in the fifth. Albricci doubts the existence of a first state that is recorded with the date of 1573.
