Comment
After a painting commissioned by Madame de Montmort (later called Madame de Chantelou) in 1655, now preserved in The State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg. The print can be dated before 1658 when Poussin could finally send the painting from Rome to Paris. Wildenstein considers Jean Dughet only the publisher, and attributes the engraving to Pietro del Po.
