The Virgin and Child, St. Sebastian, and a Bishop

Bartsch notes the initials "FBV" that appear on the Andreani printing, done in 1605, which he says stand for Federico Barocci (1535-1612). Given the dates of the two artists, if this print is by Ugo da Carpi, it cannot be after Barocci; and conversely, if it is after Barocci, it cannot be by Ugo.
