Rest on the Return from Egypt Etcher: Cornelis Cort (Dutch, 1533?–1578)
After: Federico Barocci (Italian, 1528–1612)


Prints and Drawings

Although he studied Federico Barocci’s Madonna del Popolo altarpiece in detail, Francesco Vanni had limited access to other paintings by Barocci and knew many of them only through reproductive engravings like this sheet. Vanni sometimes quoted figures directly—Barocci’s Christ Child reappears, for example, in Vanni’s Immaculate Conception—but in the case of the Madonna della Pappa, Vanni adopted the general conceit of Barocci’s scene, rather than specific details.
