- Curator's comments
- The print belongs to a series of fifteen engravings of the 'Life of the Virgin and Christ' executed in a style called by Hind the 'Broad Manner' and recently attributed to Francesco Rosselli; for a discussion of this group see the entry for Hind, B.I.1.II (1870-6-25-1048).
The engravings are followed by two additional plates of ornamental border panels intended to be cut and used to frame the individual scenes of the series. For a discussion of this group of decorative borders see the entry for Hind, B.I.17a (1870,0625.1055).
The present impression is a hand-coloured variant of Hind, B.I.17a and seems to be from a different plate. It was published by A.M.Hind in BMQ XIV December 1940, p.101.
