Comment
Bartsch noted that each impression of this print is a little bit faint beacuse of an imperfect biting of the plate, and Paolo Farinati retouched the contours with burin. The print has no relation to any of the artist's painted works, and is, according to Albricci, the most personal work of Paolo.
