The plate is captioned in black on the reverse Annibale Caracci (Carrache) peintre né à Bologne XVIe siècle (Annibale Caracci painter born in Bologna 16th century) and has marks for the factory and for 1819.

It is part of an additional supplement from that year to the service Iconographique Italien which was ordered by Napoleon in 1813 for the Palace of Rome. The original service was finally delivered to the Tuileries Palace on April 1, 1814, and was used by Louis XVIII and Charles X. The additional elements delivered to the Tuileries Palace in 1819, which included 24 portrait plates, had fleur de lys elements to the gilt borders instead of the imperial bees.

Estimate €2000-3000.
