  • Curator's comments

    A copy from the earlier plate published by Antonio Salamanca in 1554 (Huelsen 107.a), of which there are two impressions in the BM (1871,0812.782 / 1982.U.2216). The open door to the left, the open panels at the top of the second tier, and the open space above, demonstrate the duel function of Michelangelo`s structure as both a sepulchral monument and a screen between the crossing and the south transept of San Pietro in Vincoli.
