- Curator's comments
- The left half is the first state, while the right is in the second. See R.E Lewis & Susanne Boorsch, 'The Engravings of Giorgio Ghisi', Metropolitan Museum, New York, 1985, pp.61-63.
The caption identifies the scene not as being after Raphael's School of Athens, but rather St Paul preaching. For further discussion of this see Michael Bury 'On some engravings by Giorgio Ghisi commonly called 'Reproductive'', Print Quarterly, X 1993, pp.4-19; and J. Wood, 'Cannibalized Prints and Early Art History: Vasari, Bellori and Fréart de Chambray on Raphael', Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes, LI 1988, pp.210-220.
