Catalogue Note

The present drawing, surely executed with the purpose of being engraved, has been indented and blackened on the verso for transfer.  Around 1641 della Bella seems to have done a number of engravings with religious subjects, generally with a small format, like the present sheet.  A related print is not, however, known.  The penmanship, with its thin and elegant lines, is typical of the artist's style.
