Other Images:

Engraving, ca.1527, 256 x 445 mm., Bartsch 8, The Illustrated Bartsch 8 i/iii. Fine, early impression before the rework of the second state, on laid paper with the image coming through on the reverse as in early Marcantonio impressions, trimmed on or just inside the platemark but showing the borderline all around; small restorations at the left edge and small tears repaired elsewhere, flattened old fold marks and traces of printer’s creases, overall of fine appearance. The work is Caraglio’s finest and most important print. It reproduces a drawing by Parmigianino, now in the British Museum, which, according to Popham, is a composition once intended as a fresco in the Vatican but never actually painted. The drawing was later reproduced as a chiaroscuro woodcut by Antonio da Trento.

Franz Rechberger (Lugt 2133). Rechberger (1771-1841) was a painter and engraver but, perhaps more important, a great connoisseur of old master prints and conservator of the collection of Count Moriz von Fries and later of the Albertina collection in Vienna. While Rechberger is known to have had his own collection, his signature, and frequently the date of acquisition, is found on prints from the Count von Fries collection, which comprised some 100,000 drawings and prints.
