This print, made from twelve separate blocks, is Titian's largest woodcut design. The print, according ot Erica Tietze-Conrat, was listed in Benalio's' petition as "la submersione di pharaone." Therefore, it most likely dates to about 1515. This edition was published by Domenico dalle Greche in 1549.

This print is from a scrapbook (album) containing woodcuts and chiaroscuro prints. It was presumably taken apart when it was acquired by The Met in 1922. On the front page of the volume there appeared a statement that this collection was made by the poet Samuel Rogers (1763-1855) and then bought by Angela Coutts (1816-1906) in memory of him at the sale of the collection at his house (28 April – 20 May, 1856). #1615a Rogers Sale. #146 Burdett Coutts Sale (Sotheby’s, May 1922). The prints from the original album have the range 22.73.3-1–22.73.3-161.
