Bartsch 4, Hind V, 24. Monogrammed and inscribed on the plate. Excellent clear impression on laid paper with watermark (crowned "H" in circle). With narrow margins around bordering line. 31 x 20,6 cm (12,2 x 8,1 in), the full sheet
Second state, with title on plate.
With stamp of an unknown collector on verso (cf. Lugt 1843).

Collection John Postle Heseltine, London (with collector's stamp on verso, Lugt 1508).
Galerie Kornfeld, Bern (auction 194, 20 June 1986, no. 22).

The sheet presumably originates from Brescia's time in Rome, probably after Raphael, which can be inferred from the monogram "RU" above the artist's monogram. [CM].
