Comment
Albricci supposed that Paolo Farinati may have seen Giulio Romano's paintings representing the Virgin (Holy Family in Madrid, Prado, and Madonna della Gatta, Museo di Capodimonte, Naples), because of the Roman influences in this print. However, the Virgin's face shows characteristically Venetian features. Dillon claimed that the date may refer to the publication of the print rather than its execution. It is generally supposed that Farinati used a tin plate, which may be responsible for the fracture of the lower left corner. The other three corners of the plate have been cut to achieve a symmetric shape. The Budapest print is a fourth state impression printed from the octagonal plate, and was supplemented with paper splitting technique at the four corners. For the intervention in detail, see Seres 2012.
