This engraving reproduces a drawing in the Devonshire Collection at Chatsworth House. The drawing, which has long been admired, was the preparatory study for an altarpiece for the Cesi family chapel in the church of Santa Maria della Pace. For unknown reasons, the decoration of the chapel was never realized.
