A very fine impression of the first state before the retouching of the plate. With plate tone, especially in the two corners. Small margins around, partly trimmed on the bottom platemark.

This print is related to a small painting by Guido Reni representing the Virgin, the Child and the infant St. John, now in the Louvre (Paris, inv. 524, oil on copper, 24.5 x 19.2 cm). We are grateful to Antoine Rouillé d'Orfeuil for this information.
