Especially due to the interest in his drawings, Guercino maintained a team of printmakers to reproduce his designs. Oliviero Gatti was the first to approximate the artist’s graphic virtuosity or to convey the sensuousness of his early paintings. The most prolific and important, Gatti’s pupil Pasqualini, dedicated his entire career to such interpretations. This vivid impression reproduces a painting of the same year with a scene from Tasso’s Jerusalem Freed. A painting of similar style, the Penitent Magdalene, is on view in the Blanton's European galleries The Steinberg Collection includes numerous prints from Guercino’s immediate circle as well as later translations of his drawings.
