Comment
There is reverse print of the same composition by Domenico Zenoi, which includes a northern landscape in the background. Franco's version is generally considered as the earlier one, to which Zenoi's print is only indirecly related. For the antique sources of the figures, see Massari in Rome 1993, no. 188.
