Fitzroy Phillipps Fenwick of Thirlestaine House, Cheltenham', I, London, 1935, p. 79, no. 2 (as Attributed to Parmigianino); A.E. Popham, 'Italian drawings in the BM, Artists working in Parma in the Sixteenth Century', London, 1967, I, no. 144, II, pl. 115A; A.E.

Other studies for this composition are in the Louvre (6406) and at Berlin (Fröhlich-Bum, fig. 75). They are perhaps designs for a medallion to be worn in a hat. The elongated figures and tenuous line point to Parmigianino's latest period.
Literature: Popham, Fenwick, p. 79, no. 2; Popham, Windsor, under no. 631.
