Note
The proposed source is closer than the 1582 engraving by Pieter Perret after the Maltese painting by Mateo Pérez de Alesio (cf. Cohen Suarez 2015, Fig.3). See the positions of Christ and John the Baptist, especially the cleanly cut branch on which the latter rests his bent knee. The painting also seems to have, in the background, an arch bridge after the engraving. See also the two angels in sacra conversazione behind Christ.
