Comment
Mattioli suggests that this print together with an etching representing Venus and Mars and another with an allegorical scene (not mentioned in Bartsch, Mattioli 1970, figs 197 and 198) was made by Paolo Pagani during his apprenticeship after drawings by Diamantini. In contrast with this, Geddo argues that Pagani acted as publisher, and the stylistic similarity of this etchings with Diamantini's other prints contradicts Mattioli's attribution. There is a drawing with a first idea for the nude figure (Rhea?) in a private collection in Milan.
