Perhaps one of Barocci's first experiments with the technique of 'stopping out', which allows to achieve a wider tonal range in etching. The figure of saint Francis appears in reverse in Barocci's print of the Perdono, dated 1581 (B. XVII.4.4). This print is perhaps a preliminary technical and compositional experiment for that larger, more ambitious print
