Comment
Reproduces in reverse Aaron's figure in the fresco decoration of Santa Maria della Steccata, Parma, painted by Parmigianino between 1531 and 1539. Copertini interpreted the publisher's address mistakenly and attributed the print to a hypothetic artist "Antonio Salaino". On the basis of its style, Davis attributed the print to Nicolas Beatrizet. An impression in the Albertina, Vienna is inscribed with Carlo Losi's publisher's address, therefore is the third known state of the print.
