Gaspare Redi, a copyist and mount-maker, created the ornamental frame, or cartouche. Florentine nobleman Francesco Maria Niccolò Gabburri, who assembled a large series of drawn portraits and self-portraits of artists, hired them both. Gabburri probably requested that Sabatini use the oval format, which he preferred for his collection. The tradition of collectors using ornamental frames to set off their drawings began with Giorgio Vasari. Unlike Vasari, who decorated a separate sheet to use as his , Redi used the same paper as Sabatini, allowing for a better integration of image and the surrounding decorative frame.
