Description
Stipple engraving after painting by Sebastiano Conca once in the Cabinet at Houghton. Now in the State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg. Print tipped onto sheet bound in George P. Marsh’s copy of The Houghton Gallery, vol. 1. Impressions of this print were mistakenly included in both volumes of Marsh's set. The more typical location of the print was in vol. 2 according to the order given in the checklist of the contents of the Houghton Gallery in Rubenstein (1991). For the other impression, removed from vol. 2, see 1978.0534.03.33.
