Comment
Landau in London 1983 claimed that Scolari was the only artist in sixteenth-century Venice to rework his woodcuts by recutting some parts of the composition and inserting them as plugs in the woodblock. The only other example of this technique is Niccolo Boldrini's Six Saints, see inv. no. 6687. In this print Scolari altered the shape and shading of both legs, obtaining a dramatic improvement on the first state.
