Description: Very good, clear impression on laid paper with thread margins around the rectangular plate mark (the etching is an oval cut on all four sides by the plate mark. The identical image was also etched by Lorenzo Lolli (Bartsch XIX-167-5) with an oval plate mark & very slightly larger, and this print was copied at least twice in reverse. Interestingly, only those latter two give an etched reference to Reni. The image shows St. John handing a small bird to the Christ Child.
