Comment
The print belongs to a series of 19 plates that records the river combat on the Arno organised as a part of the festivities organised on the occasion of the marriage of Cosimo de' Medici and Maria Magdalena, archduchess of Austria in October 1608. The vessels were designed by Giulio Parigi and Jacopo Ligozzi. On the festivities, see Roy C. Strong, Art and Power. Renaissance Festivals 1450-1650, Berkeley and Los Angeles 1984, pp. 149-52.
