About the Work

The drawing defines the light and dark areas with its fine washes, thus creating a pictorial structure which Callot then turned into an etching. The composition was drawn around 1631 for a single etched representation of the "Ascension of Mary" (Lieure, catalogue raisonné Callot, no. 677). A short time later Callot used it again for the last two sheets of "The Life of Mary".
