In the Mariette Album, folio 4b (left). Not described by Bartsch, the print was recognized by Zani as being Guido Reni's copy of Parmigianino's print, an attribution accepted by Birke. Mariette, former owner of this impression, did not think it was by Reni, and wrote on its verso 'je crois que d'apres cette estampe que Le Guide a grave la sienne qui est a mon avis encor plus belle et tournee a gauche'. Following Oberhuber most scholars now accept that Parmigianino made two versions of this deisgn (B.XVI.8.5 and B.XVIII.300.46), one of which (B.XVIII.300.46) was formerly attributed to Reni
Inscription: Inscribed by Mariette on the verso in pen and ink: 'Mariette 1733 / je crois que c'est d'apres cette estampe que Le Guide a grave la sienne qui est a mon avis encor plus belle et tournee a gauche'
