Inscription: The bier is inscribed by the artist in pen and the same ink as in the drawing, with notes on the materials, "brocato nero / che sia di carta ataca-/ to al tappeto." Annotated by another hand in pen and brown ink on the lower left corner "312," and on the lower right in minuscole letters, "Daniele." The upper right is annotated faintly in red chalk, and there the number "30" can partly be deciphered.(transcriptions by Carmen C. Bambach, 2001)
