        Lettered below image with a line from the Song of Songs, and a dedication by the engraver to François Hobier, with "Titianus pinxit / Cornelius Bloemaert sculp. / Cum privil. S.C.M.tis et Regis Christ.mi Romae Superiorum licentia"
  • Curator's comments

    This is a detail from a composition known through a painting which is now in the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection, and where the Virgin is depicted whole-length; the extent of the repaints make it difficult to judge whether the canvas is indeed a work by Titian. A copy of the painting is in the Palazzo Spada, Rome. See Wethey, 1969, cat. No.50.
