This unusually elaborate drawing clearly shows Goltzius' influence on Pieter de Jode. It is comparable in subject and handling to and is the same size as a drawing in the Rijksprentenkabinet, Amsterdam, M. Schapelhouman, Catalogue of the Dutch and Flemish Drawings in the Rijksprentenkabinet, Netherlandish Drawings circa 1600, The Hague, 1987, pp. 74-5, no. 47, illustrated.
Further drawings of comparable format but with biblical subjects are in the Fondation Custodia, Paris (K.G. Boon, The Netherlandish and German Drawings of the XVth and XVIth Centuries of the Frits Lugt Collection, Paris, 1992, I, p. 233, no. 130, III, plate 273) and in the Rijksprentenkabinet, Amsterdam (Schapelhouman, op.cit., pp. 66-7, no. 41, illustrated). Boon (loc.cit.) describes both as designs for stained glass windows.
