Comment
The artist himself referred to this etching in his Diary. It had been considered as the iconographical model for a small painting in reverse, commissioned from the artist by Niccolo Troian in 1581, today in Narodní Galerie, Prague, inv. no. 814. According to Albricci 1980, the painting derives from a drawing, today lost, that was transformed into this etching at around the time of the painting's commission. Giorgio Marini argued that Farinati must have based his painting on a preparatory drawing rather than the print. The composition is close to Battista del Moro's painting of the same subject, included originally in the cicle of the Manuta cathedral, today in its sacristy.
