Other Images:

Etching, ca. 1560, 304 x 220 mm., Bartsch XX-104-13 (as Anielo Falcone). Fine impression on laid paper with the watermark of Justice Holding Scales, trimmed to the borderline; a small piece from the left edge restored in brown ink, short repaired tear also at the left edge, tiny wormhole, paper darkened, foxing on verso. The restoration disturbs nothing but background shading. The group of mannerist prints to which this belongs was traditionally and erroneously given to Aniello Falcone, a Neapolitan artist who lived a hundred years later. Falconetto worked in the mid-16th century in Northern Italy, probably in the Veneto (see Reed & Wallace, p. 45). The London impression reproduced in TIB is, according the the original Bartsch description of the print, actually an anonymous copy of Falconetto's etching. The original Parmigianino drawing for the print is in the Metropolitan Museum, NY.

John Barnard (Lugt 1420). Barnard’s mark, according to Lugt, is the most revered of all those of British collectors. Son of a wealthy merchant and noted politician, Barnard (died 1784) apparently had no lack of money and spent most of his life assembling, at his home in Berkeley Square, a superb collection of prints and drawings. He was probably the greatest connoisseur of his time: his mark on the back of a drawing was a virtual guarantee of authenticity, on the back of a print, an indication of the highest quality that could be obtained. His Rembrandt collection was legendary, but he collected in all areas and styles. His drawings were sold at auction in 1787, his prints in 1798.

This print also bears the mark of an unrecorded East-European collection.
