Comment
According to Dillon in Venice 1981, this print belongs to Battista Franco's first Roman experiences and reflects the influence of Raphael's frescoes in the Stanza della Segnatura. There is a strange divergence between the rigid simmetry of the architectonic background and the asymmetrical arrangement of the figures, with Christ playing only a secondary role in the composition.
