The engraving belongs to the Christ and the Twelve Apostles series based on drawings attributed to Parmigianino. As for the artist's identity, this is still unknown, many scholars have proposed to associate the monogram FP with Antonio Fantuzzi (active around 1540). On the sheet, St. John walks to the left wrapped in a mannerist twist in a draped dress while holding a chalice with a snake on it in his right hand. Below right an eagle attribute of the saint. The background is occupied at the top by a halo that suggests the divine light that descends from above, then shot on the right and left in order to frame the saint who stands out against the white background. Bottom left monogram FP. Impression from intense blacks. Fair condition: general graying of the paper and a restoration in correspondence with the copper stop along the right side. On the back of a nineteenth-century collection stamp not legible.
