- Curator's comments
- From a series of twelve lithographs representing details from Perugino's Ascension of Christ (now in the Musée Municipal des Beaux-Arts, Lyon), published by Marquet in 1854-1855. The set was published before the restauration of the painting (see inscription on the front cover).
The prints were issued in three 'livraisons' of four lithographs each. The BM keeps an edition of the whole set kept in three green portfolios (one for each 'livraison') bearing production and publication details.
The inscription on the portfolio's front cover also notes that the set was accompanied by a portrait of Perugino and a text written by Achille Jubinal, none of which are included in the BM set.
This print is from the first 'livraison', 1854.
