This work is one of the largest of the artist’s surviving drawings. Stimmer executed this sheet when he was only twenty-three and signed and inscribed it in Latin with a kind of copyright statement to the effect that it was his design and he hoped other painters would not copy it. The reddish brown background and his elaborate use of white heightening recall the work of earlier Swiss artists who were inspired by the work of Albrecht Dürer.
