    Visual Description: Zechariah observes the Virgin and Saint Elizabeth. As in Dürer's Visitation, a small dog appears in the foreground of the scene. Engraved by Goltzius, from the series of the Life of the Virgin. Third state of five (with letters and number). With monogram and date: "HG 1593". Verses by Franco Estius in the lower margin: "Plena Deo Virgo (...) F. Estius". Estius' rhymes appear in numerous Goltzius prints until 1594.

    Observations: As "La Sagrada Familia con San Juan", this plate was made in 1593 and is therefore earlier than "La Anunciación" plate of this series, altering the narrative order. Continuing the practice of designing each scene in the style of an old master, this example is made in the manner of Parmigianino.

    Condition: Perfect state. Wide margins. Central fold. Large watermark in the center of the lower area of the engraving.

    Provenance: Engraving from the art collection of Gaspar de Haro y Guzmán, 7th Marquis of Carpio and Eliche (1629-1687), a Spanish noble, diplomat, and politician. Gaspar de Haro y Guzmán was the son of the collector Luis de Haro and inherited a large repertoire of paintings from him, which he progressively expanded with works of great quality.
